Ipswich and is shown on a map entitled "Town of Ipswich, Neck Area Overlay District," 
dated September 23, 2002. The NAOD includes the Great Neck Sub-District (GNSD) and 
the Little Neck Sub-District (LNSD), which are also hereby established as overlay 
districts in the Town of Ipswich and are also shown on the map. This map is hereby 
made a part of this Zoning Bylaw and is on file in the office of the Town Clerk. 

3. Overlay District: The NAOD, GNSD, and LNSD are hereby established as overlay 
districts. Within these overlay districts, the provisions of the underlying district(s) shall 
remain in full force and effect, except to the extent that they are superseded by the 
provisions of this Section IX.K. The provisions of this section are specifically intended 
to supersede the otherwise applicable requirements of Section n.B governing 
nonconforming structures and uses, except as otherwise noted herein. 

4. Nonconforming Uses and Structures Excluding Single and Two-Family Structures: 
Nonconforming uses and structures within the NAOD, excluding single- and two-family 
structures, shall not be enlarged or extended as of right. However, the following types of 
changes or alterations to nonconforming uses or structures may be authorized upon the 

39 



grant of a special permit by the Board of Appeals upon its determination that the 
proposed alteration to the nonconforming structure or use shall not be substantially more 
detrimental than the existing nonconforming structure or use to the neighborhood or to 
theNAOD: 

a. change of a preexisting nonconforming use; 

b. change of a preexisting nonconforming use to another, less detrimental 
nonconforming use; 

c. exterior reconstruction or structural change to a nonconforming structure; 

d. alteration of a nonconforming structure to provide for a substantially different 
purpose or for the same purpose in a substantially different manner. 

5. Nonconforming Single and Two-Family Residential Structures: 

a. General: No preexisting nonconforming single or two-family residential 
structure within the NAOD shall be altered, reconstructed, extended, or 
structurally changed except as set forth in this Section IX.K.5. 

b. As of Right Changes: The alteration, reconstruction, or extension of, or 
change to such structures may be authorized upon the issuance of a building 
permit if: 

1. the Building Inspector determines that such alteration, reconstruction, 
extension, or change does not increase the nonconforming nature of 
said structure, pursuant to the criteria established in Section II.B.3. of 
this zoning bylaw; and 

2. such alteration, reconstruction, extension, or change does not add more 
than one (1) bedroom in a lawfully preexisting nonconforming single 
or two-family structure with one or two bedrooms. No additional 
bedrooms may be added in an existing structure with three or more 
bedrooms. 

c. Special Permit: Any proposed alteration, reconstruction, extension of, or 
change to such structures which would, by the Building Inspector's 
determination, increase the nonconforming nature of such structure, may be 
authorized by the grant of a special permit by the Board of Appeals upon its 
determination that such alteration, reconstruction, extension, or change shall 
not be substantially more detrimental than the existing nonconforming 
structure to the neighborhood or to the NAOD. 

d. Catastrophe or Demolition; Rebuilding As of Right: A nonconforming single 

or two-family residential structure, upon the issuance of a building permit, 
may be rebuilt after having been destroyed or damaged by a catastrophe; 
provided, however, that 

1 . The Building Inspector determines that the proposed rebuilding would 
not increase the preexisting nonconforming nature of said structure, 
pursuant to the criteria established in Section IT. B. 3. of this zoning 
bylaw; and 

40 



2. The rebuilt structure shall not contain more than the total number of 
preexisting bedrooms in all demolished or destroyed structures on the 
locus; provided, however, that one (1) additional bedroom may be 
created if the total number of bedrooms before the catastrophe or 
demolition was one or two. 

Structures within the Floodplain District, as described in Section IX.D. of this 
bylaw, shall be rebuilt in accordance with the requirements of said section. 

e. Catastrophe or Demolition; Rebuilding after Issuance of Special Permit: The 
rebuilding, after being destroyed or damaged by a catastrophe, of any a 
nonconforming single or two-family residential structure which would, by the 
Building Inspector's determination, increase the nonconforming nature of 
such structure, may be authorized by the grant of a special permit by the 
Board of Appeals provided that: 

1. The Board of Appeals determines that the proposed alteration to the 
nonconforming structure or use is not substantially more detrimental 
than the existing nonconforming structure or use to the neighborhood 
or the NAOD; and 

2. The rebuilt structure shall not contain more than the total number of 
bedrooms in all demolished or destroyed structures on the locus; 
provided, however that one (1) additional bedroom may be created 
where the total number of bedrooms before the catastrophe or 
demolition was one or two; and

Incentive"; and 

amend Section "IX. SPECIAL REGULATIONS ", by adding a new subsection "L. 
Village Incentive District Regulations ", to read as follows: 

"L. Village Incentive District Regulations 

1. Purpose: The purpose of the Village Incentive Zoning Bylaw is to: 

a. conserve significant open space parcels and protect natural features including 
historic farms and landscapes, wetlands, forests, streams, and scenic areas in 
the Town's rural sections; 

b. foster housing patterns that extend the village character of Ipswich's 
downtown neighborhoods to appropriate nearby areas; 

c. encourage a greater diversity of housing options in the Town, including 
affordable housing; 

d. create attractive and pedestrian-friendly village-style neighborhoods that are 
in close proximity to shops, services, schools, and public transportation; and 

e. promote a more efficient layout of streets, utilities and other public services 
by allowing dwellings in a compact village setting. 

2. Applicability: The Village Incentive Zoning Bylaw provides an optional development 
method whereby an applicant may develop a "Village Development Project (VDP)" in 
the Village Incentive Zoning District upon the issuance of a special permit from the 
Planning Board. The VDP shall require a minimum tract of one (1) acre. 

For any proposed development in the Village Incentive Zoning District that would create 
five (5) or more dwelling units on a property or set of commonly-owned contiguous 
properties, the applicant shall be required to undergo the VDP Application and Review 
Process in accordance with the provisions of Section IX.L.9. Applicants may also submit 
a conventional subdivision plan at the same time, in accordance with the Ipswich 
Subdivision Rules and Regulations. The Planning Board shall, in compliance with 
Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 40A, Section 9, hold a public hearing on the 
proposed VDP application, and a concurrent public hearing on the proposed conventional 
subdivision plan, if applicable. In the event both a VDP plan and a conventional 
subdivision plan are submitted, the Planning Board shall recommend, prior to the close of 



46 



the public hearing, which plan it considers most beneficial to the Town, and applicants 
shall, also prior to the close of the public hearing, elect which plan they wish to pursue, 
and shall inform the Planning Board of their choice in writing. For subdivisions that 
would create fewer than five (5) dwelling units on a tract of land or set of commonly- 
owned properties, applicants may undergo the VDP Application and Review Process in 
addition to filing a conventional subdivision plan. Any special permit application 
submitted under the provisions of this subsection, which involves the subdivision of land, 
shall be subject to the approval of the Planning Board under the Rules and Regulations 
Governing the Subdivision of Land in Ipswich. 

4. Permitted Uses: Within a VDP, the following uses, and no others, may be permitted: 

a. Single-family detached dwelling; 

b. Single-family attached dwelling; 

c. Two-family dwelling; 

d. Community uses; 

e. Religious uses; and 

f. Educational uses. 

5. Density Standards: Within a VDP, the maximum allowable density shall be calculated 
as follows. 

a. Base Density: In order to determine the Basic Maximum Number of Dwelling 
Units, the developer shall submit a "Yield Plan" that indicates the maximum 
number of lots achievable under a conventional layout in accordance with 
Section VI. DIMENSIONAL AND DENSITY REGULATIONS , Table of 
Density and Dimensional Regulations. The development depicted in the Yield 
Plan shall not alter any land areas in which such activity would be precluded 
by normal application of state and/or town laws and/or regulations governing 
wetlands and riverfront areas, or by the existence of floodplain areas or steep 
(over 25%) slopes. If the proposed VDP would utilize public sewer, then the 
Yield Plan may assume that public sewer is available. If the proposed VDP 
will not utilize public sewer, the applicant shall provide evidence acceptable 
to the Planning Board that on-site wastewater treatment and disposal systems 
may be permitted and constructed to serve all the lots proposed under the 
Yield Plan as submitted. This evidence shall include documentation 
demonstrating suitable soil and groundwater conditions determined by 
representative sampling and testing of the buildable areas of the tract using 
methods approved by the Board of Health, and shall at a minimum consist of 
one determination of soil permeability and one observation of maximum 
ground water elevation per two acres of otherwise buildable land, such tests to 
be distributed with reasonable uniformity over the tract. For the yield plan to 
be approved, all such determinations and observations shall meet this 
requirement, except that if more than five are made, only seventy-five percent 
(75%) of said determinations and observations need meet this requirement. 

47 



b. Open Space Conservation Requirement: To be eligible for a density bonus, an 
applicant must conserve open space in the Town of Ipswich by utilizing one 
of the following two methods: 

(1) Land Conservation Method: The applicant is required to provide 
ELIGIBLE OPEN SPACE which is permanently restricted in 
accordance with IX.L.8. of this bylaw. For purposes of this subsection 
L„ ELIGIBLE OPEN SPACE is defined as areas of land in the Rural 
Residence Districts which are determined by the Planning Board to 
have value as open space. The Board shall use as a basis for such 
determination the Criteria for Evaluating Open Space , as adopted by 
the Planning Board in May 1997, and as amended. ELIGIBLE OPEN 
SPACE shall not include land that is within floodplain, riverfront area 
or which has slopes greater than 25%, and no more than 25% of the 
land shall be wetlands. 

(2) Payment-in-Lieu Method: The Planning Board may allow the 
applicant, in lieu of providing permanently restricted open space, to 
contribute funds to the Town's Open Space and Water Supply 
Protection Fund. Said funds shall be used for the purchase of open 
space, or for other activities related to the protection and stewardship 
of open space. The amount of the contribution to this fund per bonus 
dwelling unit shall be established by Planning Board regulation, and 
shall be based on the value of a buildable lot in this market area. The 
required contribution may be adjusted by the Planning Board from 
time to time by the issuance of regulations. 

c. Density Bonus: The number of dwelling units within a VDP may be 
increased pursuant to compliance with L.5.b above. For the Land 
Conservation Method, the density bonus for dwelling units shall be calculated 
by multiplying the number of acres of ELIGIBLE OPEN SPACE times 1.2, 
then rounding down to the next lower whole number. In no instance shall a 
density bonus for dwelling units in a VDP exceed two hundred percent 
(200%) of the Basic Maximum Number of Dwelling Units allowed in the 
VDP. 

d. Inclusionary Housing Requirement: Ten percent of the residential units in a 
VDP shall comply with the affordability requirements of Section IX. I. of this 
bylaw. 

6. Dimensional Requirements: The dimensional requirements in a VDP shall be as 
follows. 

a. The minimum lot size for a single-family detached dwelling unit shall be 
10,000 square feet. The minimum lot size for a single-family attached 
dwelling unit or a two-family dwelling unit shall be 12,000 square feet. The 
minimum lot size for all permitted non-residential uses shall be 20,000 square 
feet. 

48 



b. The minimum frontage, setbacks, and open space, and the maximum building 
area and floor area shall be as specified in the Table of Dimensional and 
Density Regulations. 

c. The maximum height shall be no more than 30 feet. 

7. Development Standards: The following development standards shall apply to any 
VDP. 

a. Water Service: The development shall be served by a water system deemed 
adequate for fire protection and domestic use by the Planning Board, based on 
the recommendations of the Water Commissioners and the Fire Chief. 

b. Wastewater Disposal: The development shall be served by the Town's sanitary 
sewer system or by a private central sanitary sewer system. All systems shall 
be subject to approval by the Board of Health and any other permitting 
authority of competent jurisdiction. 

c. Buildings: The VDP may consist of any combination of single-family 
detached, single-family attached and two-family residential structures. 
Applicants are encouraged to build structures that: (1) have articulated 
footprints, pitched roofs, and varied facades; and (2) are oriented toward the 
street serving the premises. 

d. Parking: Parking shall be required as specified in Section VII. of this bylaw. 

e. Common Driveways: Common driveways serving not more than two (2) 
residential lots may be provided in a VDP pursuant to Section IX.E of this 
bylaw. 

8. Open Space Restriction: If the applicant chooses to satisfy the Open Space 
Conservation Requirement using the Land Conservation Method described in Section 
IX.L.5.c(l), the open space that is conserved shall be restricted in a manner acceptable to 
the Planning Board by one or more of the following methods: 

a. Conveyed to the Town of Ipswich and accepted by it for open space use to 
be held in the care, custody and control of the Conservation Commission, 
pursuant to M.G.L. Ch. 40, Section 8c; 

b. Conveyed to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as part of a state forest, 
park, or wildlife management area; 

c. Conveyed to a non-profit corporation, the principal purpose of which is 
the conservation of open space, for conservation purposes; or 

d. Made subject to a conservation restriction prepared in accordance with the 
provisions of Section 31 and Section 33, inclusive, of chapter 184 of the 
General Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts running in favor of 
either the Town or, upon the approval of the Planning Board, a non-profit 
corporation, the principal purpose of which is the conservation of open 
space. The conservation restriction shall provide that such land shall be 



49 



kept, in perpetuity, in an open or natural state, in accordance with the 
above-noted sections of Chapter 184 of the General Laws. 

9. Application and Review Process: The VDP application and review process shall be as 
follows: 

a. Pre-application Process: An applicant for a VDP is encouraged to request a 
pre-application review at a regular business meeting of the Planning Board. 
The purpose of the pre-application review is to minimize the applicant's costs 
of engineering and other technical experts, and to commence negotiations 
with the Planning Board at the earliest possible stage in the development. At 
the pre-application session, the applicant may outline the proposed VDP, seek 
preliminary feedback from the Planning Board and/or staff, and set a 
preliminary timetable for submittal of a formal application. With the 
permission of the applicant, and at the expense of the applicant, the Planning 
Board may engage technical experts to review the informal plans of the 
applicant and to facilitate submittal of a formal application for a special 
permit. 

b. Concept Plan and Special Permit Application: All special permit applications 
for a VDP shall be made and filed on the appropriate application form. The 
VDP Concept Plan shall comply with the Form and Contents for a Preliminary 
Subdivision (Section 4.3 of the Ipswich Subdivision Rules and Regulations) 
and shall also show the approximate location of proposed lot lines, buildings, 
trails and sidewalks, as well as a regrading plan for the site. The Concept Plan 
shall be prepared by a registered professional land surveyor and a registered 
professional landscape architect. The Special Permit Application shall discuss 
the methods by which the VDP will satisfy the Open Space Conservation 
Requirement and the Inclusionary Housing Requirement. For an application 
to be considered complete, it shall provide all the information required by the 
Rules and Regulations Governing Granting of Special Permits, available from 
the Department of Planning and Development. The Special Permit 
Application shall also include a Yield Plan as described in Section IX.L.5. If 

a proposed development filed under this subsection also requires subdivision 
approval, the VDP Concept Plan shall be considered to have served the 
purpose of a preliminary subdivision plan. 

c. Public Hearing: At the time of filing the VDP Concept Plan and Special 
Permit Application, applicants may also file a definitive subdivision plan. 
Alternatively, applicants may wait and file the definitive subdivision plan 
following the Planning Board's decision on the VDP Special Permit 
Application. Following the submission of the VDP Special Permit Application 
and/or definitive subdivision plan, the Planning Board shall, in compliance 
with Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 40A, Section 9, hold a public 
hearing on the VDP proposal, and a concurrent public hearing on the proposed 
conventional subdivision, if applicable. In the event both a VDP and a 
conventional subdivision plan are submitted, the Planning Board shall, prior to 
the close of the public hearing, determine which plan it considers most 



50 



beneficial to the Town, and applicants shall, also prior to the close of the 
public hearing, elect which plan they wish to pursue, and shall inform the 
Planning Board of their choice in writing. 

d. Special Permit Decision: The Planning Board may approve, approve with 
conditions, or deny an application for a VDP after having determined if the 
VDP better promotes the purposes of this Section IX.L and Section XI.J.2 
(Special Permit Criteria) than would a conventional development on the same 
site. 

e. Definitive Plan: If the Planning Board approves a VDP Special Permit, the 
applicant shall then submit a definitive subdivision plan to the Planning Board 
under the Ipswich Subdivision Rules and Regulations, unless such plan was 
approved at the same time as the VDP Special Permit. If there is substantial 
variation between the definitive plan and the development described in the 
VDP Concept Plan and Special Permit Application, the Planning Board shall 
determine whether a public hearing must be held on the modifications to the 
Concept Plan."; and 

(2) Amend the Official Zoning Map of the Town of Ipswich by rezoning a portion of the 
"Rural Residence A (RRA)" District to the "Village Incentive (VI)" District as shown on 
the attached map; 

or to take any other action relative thereto. (Sponsored by: Planning Board) 

Planning Board member Charles Allen moved that action on this article be postponed 
indefinitely. Seconded. 

Planning Board, Board of Selectmen and Finance Committee unanimously recommended 
indefinite postponement. Motion for indefinite postponement carried by majority voice 
vote.

BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

James W. Foley, Chair 

Events of the year just passed left their impact upon the 
Ipswich community. The September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks 
changed the way federal, state, and municipal governments dealt 
with domestic security and protection of citizens forever. On 
the local level, security measures were established to protect 
the municipal water supply and electric generating plant. 
Public safety officials continue to update emergency plans and 
strategy to suit the needs of Ipswich in future years. 

The committees on Public Safety Staffing and Facility Planning 
continue to work hard despite the rejection of override requests 
at the April Town Meeting. New plans calling for the study of a 
municipal ambulance service and increased medical training for 
both the Police and Fire Departments are underway. Due to the 
success of the Public Safety division, grants were awarded to 
the Town for the Reverse 911 system training and equipment. 

The Town' s efforts in the area of open space and land 
conservation were both active and successful. The acquisition 
of the Wendel estate, the Smolenski and Ross properties (for 
watershed protection) and continued negotiations for the 
Woodworth property required significant time and effort by staff 
and various committees throughout the year. 

Although the economy displayed little sign of improvement, 
infrastructure projects continued with the assistance of outside 
grant funding. North Meetinghouse Green parking and drainage, 
road and sidewalk reconstruction, and the purchase of two fire 
vehicles were all accomplished. Capital items which were placed 
on the warrant at the Annual Town Meeting were defeated. New 
initiatives and equipment replacement were placed on the 
"waiting list" for better times. 

The Town staff has spent a great deal of time in the area of 
planning and long-term project implementation. Septic system 
management, solid waste and recycling, fee structures, and 
building maintenance were all placed high on the priority list 
for the Board. 

During the year, the Selectmen spent considerable time in the 
study of the Neck Sewer project. Engineering plans, technical 



66 



study, and environmental impact reports were created and 
reviewed. A number of different warrant articles were placed 
with Town Meeting regarding this project, but most were 
defeated. The Town will continue to examine septic system 
management and municipal sewer extension projects in the 
following year. 

The Board of Selectmen dealt directly with some areas of 
personnel administration this year. The early retirement 
incentive act, employee health insurance issues, and information 
sharing with the School Committee for collective bargaining 
purposes were examined and acted upon. 

During this year the final chapter of the Cable Memorial 
Hospital and Emergency Room came to an end. The Board of 
Selectmen voted to stop municipal funding of the emergency room, 
and in early Fall that facility closed, ending a long history 
with the Town. Large cost increases and state regulations were 
two principal factors in this decision. Due to the end of 
"Cable", emergency ambulance costs for paramedic level service 
almost doubled, with no additional or extended service for the 
Town. 

The year 2002 saw Selectman Eugene Hailson leave the Board of 
Selectmen due to a move out of state. Former Selectman Edward 
Rauscher was welcomed back to the Board, along with long-time 
Selectman Patrick McNally, after the spring elections. Former 
Selectmen Charles Cobb, Charles Passales, and Walter Dziadul all 
passed away during the year. 

As we move into a new year, we must face a different fiscal 
picture: one of reduced state aid, declining resources, and 
requests for expanding municipal services. Town government can 
render its community no greater service than to make reasonable 
provision for foreseeable changes in the future. We have sought 
to broaden public confidence in governmental action by involving 
persons of every background in the planning of Ipswich's future. 

I wish to express my deep appreciation to those elected and 
appointed officials who have worked so long and hard for the 
Town and its citizens.

TOWN MANAGER 

George E. Howe 

The year 2002 ushered in a heightened urgency for public safety 
measures, but this sense was tempered by voter disapproval of 
override funding requests. In the aftermath of a tragic fire in 
January 2001 and the September 11 th terrorist attacks, Ipswich 
undertook extensive feasibility studies for upgrading staffing 
and facilities for the fire and police divisions; and the 
Selectmen presented override requests for funding in April. 
Residents rejected these override requests, as well as one that 
would have funded installation of a Reverse-911 emergency 
notification system and a biological hazards testing system. 

Discouraged by these votes, the Public Safety Committee 
nevertheless continued its work during the balance of the year, 
and announced its intention to present amended override requests 
at the April 2003 meeting. Public Safety Director Surpitski 
secured a grant for installation of the Reverse-911 system; and 
Fire Chief Michalski has obtained grants for hazmat detection 
and decontamination units. Two pieces of fire apparatus were 
funded. Bids were solicited and awarded during the year with 
delivery anticipated in 2003. 

In the same vein, the Utilities Department has completed a 
source water protection plan, and it has installed some security 
measures to help protect our drinking water supplies. 

Open Space initiatives commanded significant time and effort by 
town staff during 2002. The Town acquired much of the former 
Wendel Estate; the remaining Smolenski parcel (in Dow Brook 
Watershed) ; the Philip Ross parcel (off Paradise Road) as a 



68 



potential site to relocate Browns Well; and completed the taking 
of the former Woodworth parcel across from Browns Well. 

Considerable work was done in planning and permitting, helping 
to set the stage for extensive project development in the latter 
part of 2002 and subsequent years. Examples include the plans 
approval and final permitting both for Turner Hill and for New 
England Biolabs; the North Meetinghouse Green parking and 
drainage project; the second phase of the Town's growth 
management plan; Riverwalk engineering; cell tower leasing at 
the Jeffreys Neck Water Tank; and coordination with developers 
for the recycling of the Memorial Building and the former Middle 
School Annex for elderly housing. Renovations to the former Town 
Hall for use by the District Court remain "on hold" as The Trial 
Court does not have sufficient funding to meet the increase in 
debt service costs which would be reflected in a new lease. 

Work was nearly completed on the Pocket Park "Sidney' s 
Reservation" on County Street; and new sidewalks and resurfacing 
was completed on Hammett Street. During the summer and early 
fall, staff provided extensive support for the Neck Sewer Draft 
Environmental Impact Report, citizen polling, and presentation 
to the community. 

In the area of personnel administration, new contracts were 
signed with all six collective bargaining units; and extensive 
negotiations for an initial contract were undertaken with a new 
unit represented by the Teamsters - the (civilian) 
Communication Workers in the Public Safety Department. Analyses 
were done of the impact were the Town to have participated in 
the Early Retirement Incentive Act; in the end, the Selectmen 
did not accept the provisions of ERI . Bids were received and 
analyzed for alternative health insurance carriers and deduction 
options; as a result of this bidding process, Ipswich and its 
group health insurance participants together were able to save 
$40,000 and maintain the same level of coverage. Several 
amendments were made to the Town's personnel rules and 
regulations to bring them into compliance with emergent law and 
to reflect current practices. 

Several long-term employees retired in 2002, among them Armand 
Michaud (41 years); his wife Elaine Michaud (28 years); Jack 
Poirier (33 years); and Dick Burns (31 years). DPW Bob Gravino 
joined our staff in March. Plant & Facilities Director Richard 
Jones departed in October. Joyce Kippin was promoted to 
Superintendent of the Water Treatment Plant. 



69 



DPW Gravino drafted a trash collection policy, which was 
eventually adopted by the Board of Selectmen. Implementation of 
this policy will begin in the spring of 2003 with reduced hours 
for the transfer station and a f ee-for-service sticker system 
for collection of white goods. The Transfer Station hours will 
be reduced to two days/week, at a date to be determined, but 
perhaps rather soon inasmuch as long-term SWTS Attendant Gerald 
Blaisdell retired at the end of the year. 

Staff was actively involved in drafting several other sets of 
policies and operation plans: a septic system management plan 
(SSMP) ; Fee Waivers; Use of Town Hall Facilities; License 
Renewals & Unpaid Taxes/Fees; and Use of Revolving Funds. 
Regulations were adopted with respect to use of certain 
unimproved town lands, in keeping with a joint effort involving 
the Open Space Committee, the Essex County Trails Association, 
the Conservation Commission, the Cemeteries and Parks 
Commission, and the School Committee. 

In finance administration, the year could be characterized by 
declining resources. State aid cuts for both FY03 and FY04 have 
dampened our ability to undertake needed projects. Nevertheless, 
staff has continued working on other currently funded projects 
such as implementation of the MUNIS financial management system 
and GASB-34 fixed asset financial reporting requirements. Our 
wide area network has been expanded to include the Library, 
Police, Central Fire, and Cemetery buildings; and it is being 
bridged to the School Department's network. Our website has seen 
more extensive use in the past year, and more individuals have 
been trained in its operation and updating. 

As we move into 2003, we look forward to an improvement in the 
economy and an ability once again to address the many projects 
worthy of funding that have been deferred. Thanks to all for 
their help and support during this difficult year!

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY - Charles D. Surpitski, Director 

POLICE DEPARTMENT 

Charles D. Surpitski, Chief 
Peter A. Foote, Deputy Chief 

The year 2002 was a busy year for the staff and administration 
of the Police Department. We are pleased to report that through 



71 



the efforts of concerned and involved citizens and the diligence 
of the police officers of the community our Town remained 
relatively safe. 



A number of personnel changes occurred during the year. Longtime 
Patrol Officer Richard T. Burns retired in August and veteran 
Sergeant Jack Poirier retired in September. Each served the 
community professionally for over thirty years. Their presence 
will be missed, and we are indebted to them for their unselfish 
service. They were replaced by Patrol Officer Justin Daly and 
Jason Sinclair. A civil service promotional test to replace the 
sergeant was administered in October. The results and a 
promotion will be forthcoming in early 2003. 

As many of you are aware, the Department's facilities and 
staffing were evaluated in 2002 by outside consultants. The 
facility study concluded that our present building is woefully 
inadequate as a police station. The staffing study concluded 
that the Town should be justly proud of its police operation, 
but needs to seriously consider adding two patrol officers and 
one additional sergeant. Voter support for these positions 
became a reality at the spring Town Meeting, but failed at the 
ballot box. As the community grows, policing issues become more 
complex, and calls for service increase, one can expect both 
issues to be brought forward again. 

The department was extremely successful in receiving large 
amounts of outside grant funding. The majority of the innovative 
training police officers received and the innovative patrol 
strategies implemented were the end result of these awards. In 
addition, funding for a meaningful after school program for 
middle school youth, the introduction of the concepts of 
emotional intelligence throughout the school system, and a 
worthwhile school resource officer program were the result of 
grants received by the police in partnership with the schools 
and outside community groups. There are very few communities 
that can match these accomplishments. 



72 



Below are examples of the numbers and types of calls the 
Department responded to: 

Alarms 775 

Motor Vehicle Accidents 382 

Assaults 29 

Motor Vehicle Thefts 5 

Disturbances 266 

Breaking and Entering 51 

Domestic Disturbances 198 

Suspicious Activity 461

Total Calls for Service 10,499 

******** 

FIRE DEPARTMENT 

Chief Henry Michalski, Jr. 

The department responded to 2,624 requests for service, which 
shows an increase in responses over last year. There were 
1,588 requests for assistance due to various emergency 
situations, included were 23 structure fires as well as 724 
medical aid and rescue incidents (includes 103 motor vehicle 
accidents) . The fire department responded to the Linebrook area 
167 times throughout the past year on requests for emergency 
services . 

Fire Prevention continues to be active, conducting 1,036 various 
inspections, which is marked increase over last a year. 

Training continues to play an active part in department 
activities also. During the past year, department members both 
career and call attended driver safety training, as well as 
training on aerial ladders. The call force has just about 
completed the Firefighter I/II program offered by the 
Massachusetts Fire Academy. Two call members attended Emergency 
Medical Technician training on their own time and at their own 
expense . 

This has been a busy year with on-going concerns dealing with 
building, staffing and equipment issues. With that in mind, I 
would like to take this opportunity to welcome aboard Tom Rice 



73 



and Kathy McGreevey as new members of the call force. This 
brings the number of call firefighters up to twenty-two. We 
currently are in the process of interviewing three more 
potential members for the call force. If anyone is interested 
in becoming a member of the call force, please stop by fire 
headquarters and pick up an application so we can begin the 
process of appointment. You will all be happy to know the two 
new pieces of equipment have been ordered and should be arriving 
some time this spring and fall. 

The expectation of the modern fire department, like most 
government agencies, is to do more with less. Budgets, and 
subsequently the number of personnel, have not grown at a rate 
equal to local growth and demand for services. While no agency 
can staff at levels to handle all potential risks or demands, 
fire departments are measured by their ability to provide 
service in a timely manner. It is up to you the taxpayers of 
Ipswich to decide what level of emergency service you desire. 
The Ipswich Fire Department is comprised of a combination force 
utilizing both full time career fire fighters and part time call 
fire fighters. The staffing levels and diversity of the 
department requires personnel to be multi-talented and dynamic 
to meet the goals and objectives of the department. Our mission 
statement states that the primary mission of the fire department 
is to protect the lives and property, through fire prevention, 
fire suppression, medical assistance, hazardous materials 
control, and terrorism mitigation to all who live, work or 
invest in the community. 

As in the past, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all 
the department members both career and call for their efforts to 
improve the department through training evolutions as well as 
responses to various situations. I would also like to thank the 
Board of Selectmen, Town Manager, Director of Public Safety, and 
other departments throughout the Town for their help throughout 
the year. 

A special thanks needs to go out to the community for all your 
support in the past as well as your anticipated support for the 
future. Remember that the Fire Department is always there to 
serve you in whatever situation you may encounter.

ANIMAL CONTROL DEPARTMENT 

Harry Leno, Animal Control Officer 

Although the Animal Control Department worked throughout 2002 
without a facility, we have much to be thankful for. First and 
foremost is the generosity of all those who made the care of 
animals a priority during this transition period. Volunteers, 
area veterinarians, and the owners of a barn opened their homes 
and businesses to temporarily care for lost and abandoned 
animals. Secondly, we are grateful to all those who donated 
money and time to the Ipswich Humane Group fundraising activity 
that planned and built our new animal shelter. Thirdly, we are 
grateful to the Ipswich Humane Group for their effort to build a 
new animal shelter and their day to day support in caring for 
the animals of Ipswich. The Humane Group has never lost sight of 
their goal, and the result is a state of the art animal shelter 
at little cost to the Town' s budget and well cared for animals 
whether loved or abandoned. The new facility will be fully 
operational in early 2003. 

During the year, there were three positive rabies incidents in 
the Town. Two of these incidents required medical intervention 
and follow up. In addition, there were three positive cases of 
West Nile Virus reported. Unfortunately one of these resulted 
in the death of a horse. We will continue to work closely with 
local health officials and the Massachusetts Department of 
Public Health to monitor and control these diseases. Naturally, 
as the result of these threats, the Department spent 
considerable time dealing with incidents involving domestic and 
wild animal life. 

The Department continued to stress the importance of responsible 
and quality pet care throughout the community. This effort will 
improve the quality of community life in the long term. This 
effort continues to be directed at the owners of felines as well 
as canines. 

Proper adherence coupled with enforcement of animal issues such 
as dog waste removal from pubic areas, vicious and barking dogs, 
and nuisance and loose animals continued to demand a great deal 
of the Department's time. 



75 



Below are some of the incidents that the Department handled in 
2002: 

Animal Adopted 66 

Animals Killed by M/V's 189 

Citations Issued 131 

Complaints Received 3,835 

Complaints Investigated 3,465

HARBORS DEPARTMENT 

Charles D. Surpitski, Harbormaster 

Ptl. Charles B. Schwartz, Assistant Harbormaster 

Fortunately there were no major accidents on our waterways 
during 2002. Education, responsible boaters, and the presence of 
law enforcement officers in our boat and jet ski contributed 
greatly to this fact. 

The pump out boat continued to make a significant contribution 
to the cleanliness and health of our waterways. There were 4,335 
gallons of boat effluent pumped. The program is offered to 
boaters through a grant the Department received and is offered 
to boaters free of charge. A similar program in Rowley is also 
contributing to the health of our waters and ensures adequate 
availability of the service throughout Plum Island Sound and 
Ipswich Bay. This craft was also used on three occasions to 
pump out boats that were in danger of sinking. 

Injuries and medical emergencies frequently occur on our 
waterways. To ensure a rapid and proper response, a rescue sled 
was purchased. All Harbor Department personnel and the 
lifeguards at Crane Beach joined together to train in its use. 
Fortunately, there were no incidents requiring its use. There 
were, however, several medical emergencies that required injured 
parties to be transported to shore facilities in the harbor 
patrol boat. 

A September storm wreaked havoc in our mooring areas. Nine boats 
were heavily damaged, two sank in Ipswich waters, and a third 



76 



drifted to Gloucester and sank. Many others were slightly 
damaged. 

The Department is indebted to the Waterways Advisory Committee 
for their advice, counsel, and support. Many issues facing the 
use of our waterways are benefiting from their involvement. Most 
significant among these issues is the dredging of the Ipswich 
River from the wharf to its mouth. 

There were 627 mooring permits issued and 214 launching permits 
issued. The mooring areas are rapidly reaching capacity. 



******** 

SHELLFISH DEPARTMENT 

Phil Kent, Shellfish Constable 
Robert Kneeland, Deputy Constable 
Evan Parker, Deputy Constable 

Clamming in 2002 was a bit below average compared to previous 
years. However, as the year ended, new seed clams began to 
appear which is a hopeful sign that bountiful clamming will 
reappear . 

For the second year, the Ipswich River clam flats were open. Due 
to significant rainfall which causes the flats to close and a 
malfunction at the wharf sewer pump station in the early fall 
these flats were harvested on only 42 days in calendar year 
2002. They yielded approximately 5,287 bushels of clams. This is 
significantly lower than the 2001 harvest of 9,552 bushels. 

The Department potted 4,170 pounds of green crabs. This crab 
species is a significant predator of clams. We intend to 
continue and hopefully expand this program in future years. 

The Department worked closely with the shellfish constables of 
Rowley and Essex as well as the Commonwealth of Massachusetts 
Division of Marine Fisheries to monitor the health of the flats. 

The following licenses were issued: 



Resident 


84 


Family 


158 


Non-Resident 


92 


Commercial 


119 



77 



As in the past, the Department is thankful for the support of 
the citizens, the commercial fishermen, recreational fishermen, 
and the Shellfish Advisory Board for their guidance and support.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT 

Charles H. Cooper, Director 

I would like to take this opportunity to say goodbye to Sergeant 
John Poirier, who served as the Emergency Management Director 
for several years. Sergeant Poirier has recently retired from 
service with the Town of Ipswich Police Department. Jack was a 
truly dedicated person, who spent many relentless hours in 
emergency management, taking his role as the Emergency 
Management Director for the Town very seriously. He will be 
sincerely be missed by all in the Emergency Management field. 
With that, I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome 
aboard Detective Charles Cooper as the new Emergency Management 
Director for the Town. I am sure Detective Cooper will continue 
at a pace similar to Sergeant Poirier. 

It is the role of Emergency Management to coordinate all the 
resources of the Town of Ipswich to prevent or combat the 
effects of a disaster, either natural or man made. This mission 
is continually being reviewed and updated as needed. During the 
past year, the Local Emergency Planning Committee was busy 
reviewing the various hazardous materials located in the Town of 
Ipswich, and compiling a detailed list of what type of materials 
are located in the community as well as where, and the amounts. 

Committee members also participated in the Merrimack Valley 
annual drill, which was conducted in Lawrence this year. The 
drill is required by both the Federal and State to test our 
readiness in cases of disaster and various emergency situations. 
Each year the drill is conducted in a different location, and 
uses the talents of each member community in mitigating a given 
emergency situation. 

A new program hopefully being offered this year around April or 
May will be Community Emergency Response Team training. Also 
known as CERT, this program provides training in emergency 
preparedness and in basic response techniques to citizens, 
enabling them to take a more active role in personal and public 
safety. The program was developed to assist communities in 
taking care of themselves in the aftermath of a major disaster 
when first responders are overwhelmed or unable to respond 



78 



because of communications or transportation difficulties. 
Ipswich currently has three persons trained as instructors for 
the CERT program and has an additional four scheduled to attend 
training at the Emergency Management Institute in Emmitsburg, 

MD. 

As always we would like to thank you for your support. We look 
forward to seeing members of the community become involved in 
the CERT program, as well other various training opportunities 
which will be offered during the coming years.

PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTORATE - Robert C. Gravino, Director 

PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT 

Robert C. Gravino, Director 

The Public Works Department coordinates the activities of the 
following divisions: Public Works Administration, Highway, 
Cemetery/Parks Division, Equipment Maintenance, Transfer 
Station, Solid Waste Disposal, Recycling, and Snow and Ice 
Control. Each Division is charged with particular 
responsibilities relating to its duties. When additional 
manpower is required to perform specific tasks, personnel are 
reassigned within the divisions. 



The Town of Ipswich said farewell to long-time Director Armand 
Michaud, who retired from Town service in January 2002, after 
working for Ipswich for over thirty years. The Town is indebted 
to Armand for the many improvements that he accomplished during 
his tenure. We wish him continued success in all his future 
endeavors . 

SNOW AND ICE CONTROL 

The Public Works Divisions combine their work forces to keep the 
roads and public sidewalks safe and passable during the winter 
months. Town personnel from other directorates and divisions 
assist Public Works crews when heavy weather conditions require 
it. The Cemetery/Parks Division, Water Division, and Building 
Maintenance Division contribute to snow removal and sanding 
operations. The winter of 2001/2002 was an average winter and 
the cost for snow and ice operations was covered by the budgeted 
amount . 



79 



EQUIPMENT MAINTENANCE DIVISION 

Public Works maintains a fleet of 54 motorized vehicles to carry 
out its responsibilities and duties. All vehicles and equipment 
are serviced and repaired at the Town Garage and are kept in 
good operating condition to insure their availability when 
needed. No new or replacement vehicles or large equipment were 
purchased this year. 

HIGHWAY DIVISION 
Norman Stone, Foreman 

The Highway Division is charged with the maintenance and 
repairing of the Town's streets and storm water systems. The 
winter schedule consists mainly of Snow and Ice Operations and 
routine maintenance that does not require excavations. During 
the other three seasons, Highway is involved with road 
construction and improvements, street sweeping, patching and 
repairing streets, repairing and constructing catch basins and 
sidewalks, and sign maintenance. All catch basins are cleaned on 
an annual basis, and culverts and in-ground drainage lines are 
inspected and cleared on a routine schedule. Catch basins are 
inspected and if required, cleaned after every major storm 
event. Street sweeping was performed weekly and as needed in the 
downtown area from April to November. All Town roads and 
sidewalks were swept in the spring to rid them of winter sand 
and salt deposits. Crosswalks, parking spaces, and traffic lines 
were painted in the downtown areas and within the designed 
walking zones of the Town's schools. Crosswalks were painted 
with white tiger stripes and boxed, and all centerlines and fog 
lines were painted. Gravel roads were graded at least once in 
2001/2002 and inspected after any major storm event. 

Mt . Pleasant Avenue and Hammett Street were reclaimed and hot 
topped. Sidewalks were also reconstructed on Mt . Pleasant 
Avenue and Hammett Street and a small area on South Main Street. 

FORESTRY DIVISION 

The role of the Forestry Division includes line clearing for the 
Ipswich Electric Light Department; removal of dead, dangerous, 
and diseased trees from Town properties; roadside maintenance 
through the removal of trees and branches and the mowing of 
brush, to improve visibility and signage; the planting and 
maintenance of trees and flowers; and the repair and clean-up of 
Town property and trees caused by storm damage and acts of 
nature. With the availability of specialized equipment, 



80 



Forestry is tasked with many functions that contribute to the 
beauty and attractiveness of Ipswich. 

TRANSFER STATION 

The Transfer Station was available for Town residents for drop- 
off of solid waste and recyclable materials. Recycling bins for 
cans, glass, co-mingled paper, cardboard, tires, and batteries 
were on the site, and there was an area for white goods, metals, 
fluorescent bulbs, and televisions, cathode ray tubs, and 
computers. Leaves and yard waste were accepted year-round. A 
Salvation Army bin was available for used clothing and a bin for 
returnable containers supported the local Boy Scouts. Paint 
collections were held quarterly at the Transfer Station. An 
appointment was scheduled in advance through the DPW 
Administrative Office to drop off approved items. In the 
future, one of the quarterly collections will be coordinated 
with the Health Department' s Household Hazardous Waste 
Collection Day to better serve Town residents. 

SANITATION 

Residents are encouraged to place their solid waste and 
recyclables curbside, for pick-up by the Town's contractor. The 
Town is charged a flat fee for material picked-up curbside, 
while material that is dropped off at the Transfer Station is 
assessed a fee to be hauled away. The Town's Sanitation costs 
are reduced when residents use curbside pick-up for disposal of 
their solid waste and recyclable material. 

SOLID WASTE ADVISORY COMMITTEE 
James Temple, Chair 

Recycling by Ipswich residents has continued at a level that 
puts us in a favorable position relative to our neighbors in 
Essex County. Recycling by individual households has varied 
from excellent to poor, with most doing very well. There is 
much room for improvement, however, which would benefit both the 
environment and reduce our costs for solid waste disposal. 
Recycling tonnage was 1,281 tons for FY 2002, an improvement of 
56 tons over FY 2001. In FY 2002, Massachusetts DEP paid a 
$10/ton incentive for each ton recycled and $20/ton for each ton 
of increase. Curbside recycling reduced the overall cost to 
Ipswich for Solid Waste Disposal through savings resulting from 
curbside recycling, reduced tipping fee costs, and the DEP 
incentive payments. Recycling in the Schools has been very 
successful. A special thank you to the Food Service Department

CEMETERIES /PARKS DEPARTMENT 

James Graffum, Superintendent 

The Cemetery and Parks Division has approximately 217 acres to 
maintain. The Parks staff has been involved in cutting and 
clearing brush to create pathways at the newly acquired Wendel 
property on Jeffreys Neck Road. 

The crew also worked with contractors in upgrading the Little 
League ball diamonds at Bialek Park. Goal posts and additional 
bleacher seating were again installed to accommodate the fans 
and Ipswich High School football team. 

The Town boardwalk at Crane Beach was repaired and new supports 
were added. We also assisted various civic groups in the many 
activities that took place throughout the year as well as the 
Public Works Division in the snow removal and sanding 
operations, and any emergencies, as needed. 
There were one hundred and two funerals in 2002.

ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS 

Keith B. Hughes, Chairman 

David G. Mollica, Vice-Chair 

Robert A. Gambale, Vice-Chair 

James A. Sperber, Director of Code Enforcement 

Linda F. Valle, Administrative Assistant 

There were one hundred six (106) petitions before the Zoning 
Board of Appeals in 2002, an increase of thirteen (13) from 



85 



2001. There were four (4) Appeals of the Building Inspector's 
decisions (the same as 2001) , and all were denied. There were 
forty-two (42) Special Permit requests, eight (8) more than 
2001. Thirty-eight (38) were granted, two (2) were denied, two 
(2) were withdrawn, and seventeen (17) were granted with 
conditions. There were sixty (60) Variance requests, nine (9) 
more than 2001. Fifty-six (56) were granted, one (1) was denied, 
three (3) were withdrawn, and thirty-eight (38) were granted 
with conditions. There were no requests for Comprehensive 
Permits this year, down from three (3) in 2001, but the Board 
expects there will be requests in 2003. 



The Board finds its need for administrative support continues to 
increase. Files are constantly updated and entered on a 
database . 

The Zoning Board of Appeals is composed of five (5) Members and 
two (2) Associate Members, all of whom are appointed. Numerous 
hours are put in by these unpaid volunteers, the Chairman 
especially, and they perform a valuable service for the Town. 
Keith Hughes was again the Board's Chairman, and David Mollica 
and Robert Gambale were the Vice-Chairs. The two other Members 
were Arthur N. Sotis and Kevin B. Lombard, and Roger D. LeBlanc 
and Timothy S. Perkins were the Associate Members. 

After many years of outstanding service to the Town, Richard 
Alfoni left the Board to spend more time with his family and 
business. His resignation was accepted with regret, and we wish 
him the best. 

The Board would also like to thank Jim Sperber, the Building 
Inspector, and Linda Valle, the Board's Administrative 
Assistant, for their administrative support and a job well-done.

DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT - Glenn C. Gibbs, Director 

PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT 

Glenn C. Gibbs, Director 

The Department of Planning & Development is responsible for 
guiding the development and conservation of land in the Town of 
Ipswich, both through the regulatory process and through the 
development and implementation of long-range plans. It does 
this in part by providing support and guidance for each of the 



86 



boards and commissions within its directorate: Planning Board, 
Conservation Commission, the Historical Commission, and the 
Affordable Housing Partnership (reports on their activities are 
given below) . The Department also provides support to the Open 
Space Committee and various ad hoc committees. Listed below are 
some of the initiatives undertaken by the Department in 2002: 

> Initiated the reestablishment of the Ipswich Housing 
Partnership, and assisted with the development of its mission 
statement, goals and supporting strategies. 

> Prepared successful $67,500 grant application to the State 
Department of Coastal Zone Management for funds to install 
drainage improvements in the North Main Street/North Green area 

> Drafted several zoning articles, including a comprehensive 
rewrite of the water supply protection provision of the zoning 
bylaw. 

> Worked closely with the North Shore Housing Trust and an ad 
hoc committee to facilitate reuse of vacant Whipple Annex 
Building for affordable elderly rental housing. 

> Submitted successful grant application for $100,000 in CDBG 
funds to undertake a housing rehabilitation program in 
Ipswich. The program, which will be done in cooperation with 
the Town of Salisbury, will provide up to $25,000 per 
household to undertake needed home improvements. 

> Under the leadership of Tracie Hines, Open Space Program 
Manager, took the following actions to protect properties 
listed as critical open space by the Open Space Bond 
authorization: 

Purchased 29.5-acre Ross property off of Paradise 
Road as potential future site of the Brown's Well 
municipal water supply, and prepared successful 
$134,760 grant application to the State Aquifer Land 
Protection Program to defray the cost of acquiring 
the Ross and Smolenski parcels. 

Purchased 91-acres of the former Wendel property on 
Jeffreys Neck Road, acquired a conservation 
restriction on the adjacent 14-acre privately owned 
residential lot to limit further development on the 
property, and facilitated a historic preservation 
restriction on the historic structures on site to 
ensure their permanent protection. 



87 



• 



• Initiated the Wendel Stewardship Committee to 
facilitate public input into the Town's management 
plans for the Wendel property. 

• Negotiated agreement to purchase 34-acre AC Builders 
property on High Street (adjacent to White Farms) 
for passive public recreation, water supply 
protection, and conservation purposes (expected 
closing in April 2003), and prepared successful 
$199,105 Self-Help grant application to defray the 
cost of acquisition.

PLANNING BOARD 

Leslie F. Brooks, Chair 

The year 2002 was an important year for the Planning Board in 
many ways. Long-time Chairman Leslie Brooks stepped down at the 
end of the year and was replaced by Associate Member David 
Santomenna and Charlie Allen as co-chairs. Santomenna will be 
responsible for chairing the meetings and the day-today 
operations of the Board, while Allen will be responsible for 
overseeing the long-term planning function of the Board. 

This year saw the long-awaited approval of two Great Estate 
Developments: Turner Hill and New England Biolabs. These 
projects represent an enormous amount of effort both on the part 
of the Board and the Director of Planning and Development; and 



88 



these decisions were reached after countless hours of 
discussions among many Town boards and the applicants. 

The Board reviewed 12 applications for site plan review in 2002. 
Of these, two were associated with the Great Estates 
developments, four were in conjunction with special permit 
applications, and one was a modification of an earlier decision. 
Overall, nine were approved and endorsed in 2002, one was signed 
at the first meeting in 2003, and two are pending. 

Eighteen special permit applications were also filed with the 
Planning Board. Approved applications included five separate 
special permits for New England Biolabs, and a GEPD and water 
supply special permit for Turner Hill. Other special permit 
approvals were for a miniature golf operation at 84 Turnpike 
Road, reconstruction of the Cumberland Farms on Route One, a 
dwelling unit in an accessory building at 10 Maple Avenue and 90 
County Road, and a three-unit multi-family at 9 Soffron Lane. 

The Board also voted to deny a seven-lot preliminary subdivision 
plan on Heartbreak Road, and at its first meeting in 2003, voted 
to deny a definitive subdivision for the same proposed 
development. Other Board activities included a road improvement 
plan for a lot at the end of Paradise Road, modification to a 
one-lot definitive subdivision on Great Neck, and a one-lot 
definitive subdivision on Linebrook Road. The latter two items 
are pending. 

Finally, the Board reviewed seventeen applications for ANR 
(Approval Not Required under Subdivision Control Law) plans; 
sixteen were endorsed, and one was denied. 

The Board wishes once again to thank Glenn Gibbs, Director of 
Planning and Development, and Joan Vontzalides, Planning 
Assistant, for their tireless efforts on our behalf. 
The Board anticipates another full and productive year in 2003.

CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

David Standley, Chair 

David Pancoast, Conservation Agent 

Marie Rodgers, Recording Secretary 

The Conservation Commission is composed of seven appointed town 
residents who serve as unpaid volunteers. During 2002, the Board 
membership did not change, nor were there any changes in staff. 



89 



The Commission continued its role as an advisor to other 
municipal officials and boards on conservation matters. The 
Commission serves the public as a provider of information on 
conservation and land preservation activities in the community. 
Most of the Commission's time is occupied with its significant 
role as local environmental regulatory board under the 
Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act and local Ipswich Wetlands 
Protection Bylaw. The Commission also had a significant role in 
2002 in land acquisition of open space in concert with the Open 
Space Committee. The ConsCom may lawfully accept gifts of land 
or money or other value for conservation purposes. The 
Commission' s existence allows the community to qualify for state 
self-help funds regarding open space protection. This past year, 
the Commission also continued a program of reviewing and 
revising certain of its regulations and documentation in an 
effort to enhance its services to the public and streamline its 
operations . 

In 2002, the Commission continued regulatory review of several 
complex projects, including New England Biolabs' proposal to 
construct new quarters at the former Don Bosco Estate on County 
Road, Turner Hill's proposal to construct an eighteen hole golf 
course and housing development at the former La Salette 
Shrine/Rice Estate on Topsfield Road, and the complicated 
Ipswich High/Middle School project on High Street. A committee 
was formed to look at assessing impacts from several projects 
and -violations in the vicinity of the central portion of town 
near the divergence of Pineswamp and Linebrook Roads. The 
Commission also continues to work on the issues of illegal 
dumping in town and beaver activity management with continuing 
development of a local policy to encourage use of water 
level/flow control devices known as beaver deceivers. 

This year the Commission took 137 official regulatory actions, 
as listed below, which demonstrates the permitting activities as 
compared with the previous six years.

queries . 

EMPACT Grant Report 

In December of 2000, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 
awarded an EMPACT grant to the Town for the purpose of 
monitoring the Ipswich River and Parker River Watersheds. In 
2002, the third year of the grant program, work continued in a 
number of areas. 

An IPSWATCH brochure was created to publicize the website as a 
resource for people seeking environmental information about the 
watersheds. The brochures have been available at the Ipswich 
Town Hall Conservation Office for the past few months. The 
brochure will be distributed to other town halls and libraries 
in the watersheds over the next couple of months. The intention 
is to inform and educate the people who live, work and play in 
the watersheds so as to encourage stewardship of the precious 
resource of water and habitat the watersheds provide. 

The IPSWATCH website, which was developed as part of the grant, 
will also updated and expanded in 2002. The website address is 
www. ipswatch. sr . unh. edu . We have tried to make it informative 
and easy to use. We've included a current river conditions 
section, a news and alerts section, current and historical 
monitoring data, water ban information, and much more, including 
links to other web sites with river and environmental related 
information. You can let us know what you think by sending us 
your feedback directly from the website. 

Although the EMPACT grant was set to expire in 2002, the EPA has 
extended the funding for one more year. This will allow for an 
additional season to conduct near real time sampling in the 
spring of 2003, and well as time to analyze and interpret the 
hundreds of headwater nutrient samples which have been collected 
by volunteers from the Ipswich River Watershed Association over 
the past two years. All of this is in an effort to better 
understand and quantify the affects of development and water 
withdrawals on the health of the two watersheds. If you have 
questions about the EMPACT grant, call Beth O'Connor at 978-356- 
6607.

HISTORICAL COMMISSION 

John P. Moss Jr., Chairman 

The annual Mary Conley Award was presented to David and Carol 
Bolka of 5 Hovey Street. The Bolkas lovingly rehabilitated their 
first period home on Hovey Street. The house now stands as a 
great example of how an early American home can be brought into 
the twenty first century. By adding onto the existing structure, 
the Bolkas were able to enlarge the house and create the modern 
living space which makes ' it more attractive and comfortable. 

Another historic home on County Street is also being prepared 
for rehabilitation. The Knowlton house has been the center of 
much controversy since the prior owner announced plans to 
demolish it. Through the efforts of many preservationists, 
including the Massachusetts Historical Commission and 
descendants of the original Knowlton family, the demolition was 
delayed until a buyer was found. With the cooperation of town 
officials, the Knowlton house is being rehabilitated into 
condominiums, and the historic streetscape of County Street will 
be preserved. It will stand as a fine example of how government 
and private developers can work together to profitably preserve 
historical structures. 

The Commission is planning a major exhibition of some of the 
town' s historic memorabilia, including the articles which 
belonged to Colonel Nathaniel Shatswell. Col. Shatswell served 
in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Civil War; and his 
family left the Commission many items, including his uniform, 
saddle, Bible (complete with bullet hole) and weapons. The 
Shatswell memorabilia is presently being preserved by the town 
with the help of Town Clerk Fran Richards. We are hoping to 
expand our efforts to present an exhibition in coordination with 
the Historical Society; Patricia Tyler of the Society is a 
regular contributor at our meetings. 

The Selectmen and Town Manager continued their support of the 
Commission with the establishment of a revolving account so that 
the Commission can accumulate funds for our projects. Apart from 
the exhibition of artifacts, we hope to work with Fran Richards 
in cataloging and preserving the many town documents which need 
attention. Fran has been a one-person historical preservation 
commission for many years. We look forward to working with her 
in whatever way we can. Another project for the coming year is 
the updating of the "Form Bs". These forms, which catalog the 



92 



historical structures in the Town, were originally completed in 
the 1960's and 1970's. The forms have been redesigned over the 
years and are now much more inclusive and detailed. We hope to 
begin the process of research, which will enable us to update 

the forms . 

Ipswich stands out among American towns as the leader in 
historic preservation. The streets of Ipswich make up an 
American history museum greater than any museum in the country. 
Everyone should take pride in their preservation.

HOUSING PARTNERSHIP 

William Gallagher, Chairman 

In January of this year, the Ipswich Affordable Housing 
Partnership, after being inactive for several years, was 
reestablished. With the Town's increased focus on affordable 
housing over the past few years and the recent expansion of the 
Town's inclusionary housing requirements, the reactivation of 
the Partnership was both necessary and timely. 

The first action of the Partnership was to adopt a Mission 
Statement, which outlines the following objectives: 

• promote and assist with the development of affordable 
housing in Ipswich which reflects the goals and character 
of the community; 

• establish housing priorities for the town; 

• develop criteria for evaluating affordable housing 
proposals; 

• assist in the resolution of concerns regarding specific 
development proposals; 

• obtain local, state and federal funding and other resources 
for affordable housing; and 

• increase public awareness of the importance of developing 
and maintaining affordable housing as part of a strong 
and diverse community. 



93 



The next action of the Partnership was to develop seven goals, 
as well as 15 supporting strategies to facilitate the 
accomplishment of those goals. The goals and supporting 
strategies were endorsed by the Board of Selectmen in July of 
2002. 

In addition to the above, the Partnership played a role in a 
number of housing initiatives in 2002, including the Memorial 
Hall and Whipple Annex Elderly Housing Projects, and the 
proposed affordable rental housing at 13-15 Depot Square. 
Unfortunately, the Partnership was unable to provide any down 
payment assistance under its First-Time Homebuyer Program, due 
to the lack of housing priced at a level affordable to 
homebuyers earning less than 80% of the regional median 
household income. 

Current members of the Partnership are Chairman William "Jay" 
Gallagher, Ed Dick, Don Greenough, Don Bowen, Karen Wallen, Don 
Gill, Jim Warner, and Michael Schaaf . Staff assistance in 2002 
was provided by Glenn Gibbs and Marie Rodgers.

DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES - Elizabeth M. Dorman, Director 

RECREATION DEPARTMENT 

Elizabeth M. Dorman, Recreation Director 

A variety of programs, services, and activities were organized 
for all age groups including a number of community-based social 
services . 

Family events included the July 4th Parade & Field Day, the 
annual Marathon, a Halloween parade & program, and parades on 
Memorial Day and Veterans' Day organized by local veterans' 
groups. Cooperation with the Ipswich Business Association again 
facilitated Santa's arrival with a parade from School Street to 
Town Hill for tree lighting ceremonies and caroling. 

Summer offerings included tennis lessons at Bialek Park, golf 
lessons at both Ipswich and Rowley Country Clubs, Workreation 
and social events for young teens, Jr. Summer Fun, the annual 
youth Sand Sculpture Day at Crane's Beach, and drop-in 
activities at Bialek Park with optional field trips. Swim 
lessons with busing were contracted at the YMCA, resident lot 
parking attendants were contracted at Crane's Beach, and 
lifeguards were provided at Pavilion Beach. 



94 




Summer evening programs featured the West Newbury Volunteer Fire 
Association Band, a UNH Caravan Show, a magic show by Rich 
Nunziato on "Harry Potter's Birthday", and a Kids Dog Show with 
a demonstration by the Old Colony Obedience Club. The Recreation 
Department-sponsored community band provided concerts outdoors 
at Cable Gardens and indoors at the Performing Arts Center. 

Fall activities included Homework and Computer Projects, Crafts 
Club, Cooking Club, Adventure activities, a Creative Hands 
quilting and knitting group, and weekly off-site trips to 
skateparks, movies, and bowling activities. Winter programs 
included two learn-to-ski programs for grades 3-5 and 6-8, 
several February vacation week activities including a Harry 
Potter Day, and adult sessions of volleyball, and ping pong. 
Golf classes were offered at the Rowley Country Club for 
children during spring and fall seasons and for adults in the 
spring. 



95 




< i it U'- ■ \ ^uJ&S&W 



Town Hall facilities, including a program room, kitchen and 
snack bar area, storage pantry, cafeteria/lounge, crafts room, 
and gymnasium, are being shared by the Recreation Department, 
the Council on Aging, and number of evening users for a variety 
of programs and services. 



Official Town efforts to build a skatepark at Bialek Park were 
put on hold after vandalism and theft of the tennis nets. 
Parents continued fundraising efforts while a dialogue began 
with YMCA officials to pursue possibility of building one at 
their site. The small, portable ramps and rails purchased a year 
ago have been stored for possible use later if a site is 
constructed. 



The seven-member Recreation Commission and Recreation Director 
met regularly throughout the year to discuss programs, 
facilities, and policies as well as to plan for the future. 
Members continued to volunteer at a number of programs.

YOUTH SERVICES 

Marcia Ford, Youth Director 

Youth services in Ipswich are dedicated to improving the lives of 
Ipswich youth by offering a number of varied programs to meet 
recreational, academic, and social needs of this unique population. 
The foundation of the Youth Services Program continues to be communit; 
collaboration; and many programs were developed as joint ventures wit' 
other local agencies in direct response to community needs. 



96 



Community service projects were organized for volunteer teens, 
church youth groups and those referred through the local courts 
and Juvenile Diversion programs. They were involved in cleaning 
and painting projects, outdoor work at park sites, and some 
services for needy senior citizens. 

After school clubs were in full swing aided by local experts 
recruited to teach a variety of classes. A local artist offered 
classes in cartooning, jewelry design, and sketching; and a 
regionally recognized quilter supervised the creative hands 
offerings. The Thursday early release days provide opportunities 
for field trips to area skate parks, movies, and a bowling 
program. In addition, many inter-generational experiences have 
developed such as senior citizens helping to teach children 
knitting and quilting. 

Talk To a Friend, our peer leadership program for Ipswich Youth, 
met weekly to receive training based on current youth issues. 
Peer Leaders also helped chaperone activities for younger 
children, and assumed some mentoring and mediation 
responsibilities. They continue to prepare for outreach and 
speaking engagements such as the Essex County Youth Conference 
and are an active voice in teen policies and programs. 

The Zone Cafe is flourishing as a focal point for teen programs. 
Monthly concerts continue to showcase local talent for high 
school students; and Middle School drop-in nights and dances are 
serving the younger teens. 

Family advocacy services were provided on an as-needed basis to 
families in need who met with the youth director to determine 
current needs of the family and secure connections to available 
services. Regular meetings with the family provided further 
monitoring and coordination of related services. In addition, the 
director was available for after-hours' support and crisis 
intervention for at-risk families.

A wide variety of programs for senior citizens of Ipswich were 
provided under the umbrella of Council on Aging Services. 



97 



A senior center operated weekdays, 8:00-4:00, at the new Town 
Hall. The renovation of the Whipple Middle School into the new 
Ipswich Town Hall provided the Council on Aging with over 4,000 
square feet of space. Four part-time receptionists welcomed 
guests, answered the phone, and assisted with the daily 
operation of the center. 

Regular programs included the Silver Strands choral group, a 
book discussion group, travel club, bridge and card groups, 
knitting and quilting groups, art classes, monthly lunch club, 
and movies. Health-related programs included monthly health 
screenings, weekly blood pressure clinics, monthly nutrition 
program, Tai Chi, tennis, exercise and line dancing classes, a 
walking club, and a swimming group. Tickets were sold for day 
trips sponsored by the Recreation Department and the Friends of 
the Ipswich Elderly.

approximately 20,300 miles of service. The Friends group 
continued to raise funds and support projects that fall outside 
of the COA budget. The Friends also contributed to a Christmas 
party for 185 seniors held at the Gymnasium at the Town Hall. 
Grants from the Executive Office of Elder Affairs and the Coburn 
Charitable Society provided a part-time administrative 
assistant, a volunteer recognition luncheon, a portion of the 
drivers' salaries and gasoline for the COA van. The Coburn 
Charitable Society provided additional funding for a beautiful 
outdoor patio and a medical transportation program. 

The Outreach program enlisted a corps of 40 volunteers who 
provided 1782 hours of volunteer service to local elders. This 
program also provided volunteers who drove senior citizens 
17,154 miles to out-of-town medical appointments. Other services 
of the Outreach program included social visits, phone calls, 
help with chores, and guidance in making personal, medical, 
housing and financial decisions. The Outreach program served 456 
senior citizens during the year. Other assistance included 
Money Management and Bill Paying for elders. 

Town contributions to Action, Inc., provided fuel assistance to 
those who qualified as well as Income Tax Assistance to any 
elder who needed guidance. Contributions to SeniorCare provided 
support for elderly still living on their own who needed outside 
support to facilitate their independent living arrangements. 

A seven-member council met monthly to review programs and 
operations and plan additional offerings.

EASTERN ESSEX DISTRICT 
DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS' SERVICES 

Terrance P. Hart, District Director 

This department is charged under Chapter 115 Massachusetts 
General Laws with providing all manner of services to veterans 
and their dependents including widow (er)s. Principal workload 
under state law includes the administration of aid to veterans 
and dependents, which deals with the unpredictable variables of 
illness, unemployment, unemployability, labor disputes and the 
economy. Communities fund this program, which is subsequently 
75% reimbursed the following fiscal year by the Commonwealth. 
This is a need based program, and the department is required to 
conduct periodic comprehensive review of the cases to insure no 
substantive facts have changed, while working with the veteran 
to identify alternative or long-term solutions to individual 
circumstances. During the calendar year, 10 veterans/widows were 
on this program for varying periods. The vast majority of 
situations are resolved without cost to the towns. Under state 
law, the department also assists qualified veterans to obtain 
bonuses, and qualified veterans, widows and parents to obtain 
state annuities, property tax abatements, and other benefits. 

The Veterans' Services program also mandates extensive 
interaction within the federal community, principally with the 
Department of Veterans' Affairs. The Veterans' Service Officer 
(VSO) assists veterans and their dependents in filing for 
pensions, service connected injury/illness compensation, 
dependency indemnity compensation for survivors, VA healthcare 



100 



enrollment, insurance claims, decedent claims, and many other 
issues. Federal benefits processed by this department are paid 
directly to those eligible to receive the assistance or 
entitlement. Federal VA dollars brought into this community 
exceed $1.1 million annually, with the current staff responsible 
for approximately $330,000 dollars paid to or saved by those 
assisted in Ipswich. Over 90% of our current activity stems from 
the federal program. Additionally, the department interacts 
within the federal community to correct military records, obtain 
needed documentation and insure veterans/dependents receive 
awards and recognition to which entitled. The VSO provided 
information, advice or assistance to 184 of the town's 1167 
identified veterans and many of the 226 identified veterans' 
widows . 

The department advocates for veterans on issues at the local, 
state and federal level; interacts with elected and appointed 
officials on many issues; and works with local organizations 
such as councils on aging, housing authorities, veterans 
organizations, historical societies and graves registration 
officers in serving the community. The District sponsored a 
Korean War Commemorative ceremony in which 22 Ipswich veterans 
were honored, and it will hold another ceremony in FY03 to honor 
additional Korean War and Korean War era veterans from within 
the district. 




Terrance Hart and Georgia Gadbois are receiving 
a Certificate of Recognition on behalf of the Veterans 
from A. J. Paglia, Rowley Selectman, at the 7/26/02 
Salute to Korean War & Korean Era Veterans 



101 



On July 1, 2002, three additional towns were accepted into the 
district, reducing Ipswich's share of the administrative support 
costs. The Eastern Essex District is now composed of the Towns 
of Essex, Georgetown, Hamilton, Ipswich, Rowley, West Newbury 
and Wenham. A Board of Directors consisting of one selectman (or 
designee) from each town maintains oversight. Mr. James Foley is 
the Ipswich member of the Board of Directors.

UTILITIES DEPARTMENT - Timothy Henry - Director 

ELECTRIC DIVISION - Raymond R. Shockey - Manager 

The deregulated energy market continues to evolve during 2002. 
Although energy prices were more stable than the past several 
years, they started to rise at the end of the year due mainly to 
sharp increases in fuel costs. These in turn were affected by 
problems associated with various oil-producing countries. We 
have renewed our contract with a firm that is helping us with 
short-term power purchase issues and expect to reduce costs in 
this area. However, we foresee higher prices than last year 
through most of 2003. 

The past year has also involved the planning for a new regional 
power-delivery and pricing system that will be put in place in 
2003. This will alter the method of pricing and distributing 
electricity through New England. The impact on prices for our 
customers is yet to be determined. 

We continued to make progress on our two substation projects at 
Fowlers Lane and on High Street. All of the equipment is 
installed, and our crews continue to prepare the stations for 
expanded operation during 2003. 

We also worked with engineers and project managers to finalize 
the plans for electric service to two new large projects that, 
when completed, will greatly expand the energy billings for the 
department. These are the residential/commercial project at 
Turner Hill and the New England BioLabs facility on Route 1A. 

Kilowatt-hour sales increased 2.6% over 2001. 

2001 sales: 87,728,000 

2002 sales: 89,987,000

WATER DIVISION 

Tim Henry - Manager 

A dry summer caused the department to impose water restrictions 
on August 19, 2002. Due to the continued dry spell, the 
department imposed a water ban on September 12, 2002. The 
restrictions and ban were lifted on October 28, 2002, when the 
combined reservoir storage capacity rose above 4 6 million 
gallons. 

During the months of March and April, the 6" cast iron water 
main on Hammatt Street was replaced with a new 8" ductile iron 
water main. Gate valves and fire hydrants were also replaced as 
part of the project. Due to the age of the water main and 
numerous lead water services needing replacement on the street, 
the Water Department decided to replace the entire main and all 
lead services prior to the DPW sidewalk and resurfacing project 
which was to be conducted during the summer months. 

The Massachusetts Dental Society recognized the Water Department 
for its efforts in optimizing fluoride levels in the public 
water supply for the third straight year. Joe Ciccotelli 
accepted the award on behalf of the Water Department at a 
Massachusetts Dental Society meeting. 

There were two extensions to the distribution system in 2002. 

Off Essex Road 340 feet of 8" CLDI pipe. 

Off Town Farm Road 630 feet of 8" CLDI pipe.

station on High St. Also, a piece of force main is being 
replaced in the project.

TOWN CLERK 

ELECTIONS ADMINISTRATOR 

Frances A. Richards, CMC 

It has been a pleasure working in our spacious new office at Town 
Hall; but we're having a difficult time adjusting to the open 
concept with all the noise and interruptions in the hall. The 
office is responsible for local and state elections, recording and 
certification of all official actions from town meetings, census 
and voter registration, maintenance and issuance of vital records, 
processing and issuing licenses and permits approved by the Board 
of Selectmen and various other licenses including dog, shellfish, 
sporting and marriage licenses. We hope that funds will be 
available to organize the old records and to continue binding and 
records restoration in our beautiful new vault. 

The staff consists of the Town Clerk and Assistant Town Clerk 
Elise "Lee" Graves. Outstanding dedication and effort make it 
possible to run this office with only two people. 

Special thanks to my dedicated volunteers! Special thanks go to 
Isobel Coulombe, who indexes and files my old vital records and 
responds to some of our requests for genealogy; and Phillip 
Grenier, who has completed an inventory of the Col. Nathaniel 
Shatswell Collection which found its way to the climate-controlled 



107 



comfort of the new vault in the clerk's office. Also, my sincere 
thanks to the volunteers who assisted me this year during the 
extremely busy periods: Peg Broekel, Isobel Coulombe, Renata 
Gilmore, Moira McLaughlin, and Robert Stone. 

On September 10 th , a beautiful flowering plum tree donated by John 
Winthrop in memory of the lives lost on September 11 th , 2001, was 
planted by Jim Graffum and his crew in front of the new Town Hall. 
Jim also selected and placed a memorial stone that will hold the 
bronze commemorative plaque.

MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS 

Greg Parachojuk, MIS Director 

The MIS department is charged with the ongoing mission to 
develop, enhance and support the Town' s computing and 
telecommunications infrastructure, and to provide the systems 
and services necessary for the Town' s departments and users to 
fulfill their stated goals and objectives. 

In 2002, we helped bring online and support the new 4GL Munis 
financial system. We are now completely transitioned to this new 
system with the exception of the Utilities module, which is 
supposed to be ready sometime in 2003 for deployment. We are 
still dependent on our legacy ADMINS system for Utilities 
billing until then. 

The Town's web site http://www.town.ipswich.ma.us got a complete 
facelift in 2002. Many improvements were made to increase the 
accessibility and usefulness of content. Forums have been used 
to allow the public and selectmen to interact on important 
subjects. Many forms and maps are now available with a new site 
search function to help retrieve data easily. I invite you come 
check it out and to leave any comments or suggestions. 

Finally, the Town's "WAN" or Wide Area Network was expanded to 
include the Police, Fire, Library and Cemetery departments. 
Applications like Email and GIS are just some of the benefits 
the Town's WAN can provide. A separate co-initiative with the 
school department was started in 2002 and is now in the works to 
tie them into necessary Town's resources as well.

The Purchasing Office oversaw all Workers Compensation long-term 
cases and reported all Town and School employee injuries. All 
property and casualty insurance claims received were reported to 
the Town's insurance carrier. Insurance renewals were 
processed, policies received, and vehicle, equipment, and 
computer inventories maintained. The Risk Management 
Coordinator attended seminars and workshops relating to all 
areas of insurance. 

The Purchasing Office was also responsible for copying, 
collating and distributing 25 budget copies while meeting the 
set deadline. The Town Manager edited the budget details himself

this year. The Purchasing Office is again grateful to him for 
that. Budget details with adopted figures for FY04 Budget will 
be inputted and distributed to Departments by this office after 
the Annual Town Meeting. 

The Purchasing Office has been given responsibility for the 
recording of Fixed Assets under the mandate of GASB Statement 34 
and will be undertaking this monumental task. The year 2002 was 
used to gather information from all Town departments as well as 
all schools for input into the new Munis Accounting System. The 
process is ongoing. 

The Purchasing Office is also responsible for the compiling, 
editing, printing and distribution of this Annual Town Report.

SCHOOL COMMITTEE 

Margot Sherwood, Chair 

Best regards from members of the School Committee! 

We continue to face fiscal challenges as the economy slows, 
state and federal resources are cut, and our enrollment grows. 
The staff and administration have been very aggressive in their 
pursuit of outside monies to support the educational needs of 
the children. Through the hard work of the 



117 



staff/administration, the Ipswich School District again 
benefited from almost a million dollars in competitive grants. 

The school committee continues to focus on developing a budget 
that meets the educational needs of the children, formulating a 
long-term strategic plan, and working with the administrative 
team to improve MCAS scores. Our teachers and administrators 
continue to be committed to excellence and use the results to 
help guide changes and improvement in our curriculum. As 
anticipated, our MS/HS population continues to grow. Enrollment 
has increased by 50 students. 

Recently the children of Ipswich received $285, 000 from the 
Feoffes. This money was use to help balance our budget as well 
as for upgrading the computers at the elementary schools. As you 
are aware, the school district does not have a capital budget. 
Therefore, any large ticket items must come from the operating 
budget, be bonded, or come from an override. Our schools were 
once known as leaders in the field of technology. Through your 
generous support of our new MS/HS, we were able to acquire new 
technology at the secondary level. 

This year we lost the new Facilities Manager Richard Jones, the 
position shared between the town and schools. We are working 
very hard to replace him. This position has been crucial for the 
upkeep of our buildings. With his input we have re-evaluated 
the structural needs at our Elementary Schools and determined 
the most cost-effective way to handle any repairs. In addition, 
a long-range plan for upkeep of the integrity of our buildings 
is underway. 

The School Committee has been working with the School Building 
Committee to complete the MS/HS building project. With the help 
of Richard Jones and Bob Gravino, the new Public Works Director, 
the MS/HS building project is almost done. School Street is 
open and the fields are almost complete. This spring should see 
the completion of this long awaited project. 

Representative Hill and Senator Tarr continue to fight for the 
educational concerns of Ipswich, and we thank them for their 
hard work and effort. With the uncertainty of the Chapter 70 
state aid, it has been a very difficult to develop a budget. We 
have been told that we will lose our grants for the two full day 
kindergartens as well as the Birth to Three program. Both these 
programs have been very valuable for our children. 



118 



Lastly, we would like to thank all of you for your support. The 
Ipswich Schools could not have reached the level they are at 
without you. As our children move forward to meet the growing 
challenges in the world, it is comforting to know that they move 
forward with a sound educational base that you have helped to 
provide. We will continue to work hard for the children of 
Ipswich, and we look forward to your continued commitment and 
support .

SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

Richard L. Korb 

The FY2003 school year has indeed been a unique one filled with 
opportunities, rewards and challenges. The overriding issue 
continues to be the fiscal problems that have plagued the State 
and the community, thus impacting the School District's ability 
to deliver the educational services it feels are necessary to 
maintain the quality educational programs this community expects 
and deserves. 

As is the case every year, the School Committee and I set goals 
to guide us toward our vision. This year's are as follows: 

1. Develop a district operational budget which is both 
educationally and fiscally sound, and which addresses the 
educational needs of all students. 

2. Continue to address the elementary capital improvement 
needs at both Doyon and Winthrop as outlined in the 
engineering study, and work with the School Committee to 
bring this issue to the community. 

3. Continue with the implementation of the Science Study 
Committee' s recommendations, as well as begin the process of 
reviewing the new Social Studies Frameworks. 

1. Work with the administrative team, Language Arts Subject 

Area Committee, and professional teaching staff to design a 
three-to-five year literacy initiative in keeping with our 
theme of "every student connected, literate and 
demonstrating success," which will move student competency 
in the areas of writing and reading to the next level of 
achievement . 



119 



2. Establish a district-wide review committee to develop 
guidelines for the expenditure of future Feoffees' 
contributions . 

3. Continue to place a high priority on student and staff 
safety by always exploring new strategies to improve and 
enhance the health, welfare and safety of our students and 
staff. 

4. Begin the process of implementing the priority goals of the 
District Strategic Plan. Those goals are specific to: 1) 
student achievement, 2) instructional practices, 3) 
operational practices, and 4) communications practices. 

I am pleased to report that progress towards these goals has 
been positive and productive. 

Our staff continues to adopt the philosophy that we must always 
be on a track of continuous improvement. That attitude is 
reflective in the ongoing evaluation of programs that occur each 
year. 

Our Early Childhood "Birth to Age Three" Program continues to 
flourish while serving over 200 families in the community. 

This year, once again, our MCAS test scores placed us far above 
the State average in over 90% of the categories. Our Middle 
School and High School scores were once again impressive, and 
our Elementary scores were improved over last year. We will 
continue to strive to improve our tests scores and have teams of 
professional educators in place analyzing test results and 
providing valuable analysis, which will lead to adjustments in 
our curriculum to assure our curriculum is aligned with the 
State Frameworks . 

The various subcommittees of the School Committee worked 
diligently in a number of areas from curriculum, policy 
development, technology, athletics and communications. 

Some of the highlights of the FY03 School Year included the 
completion of the Elementary Capital Improvements Study aimed at 
addressing a number of "infrastructure" repairs such as roofs, 
boilers, doors and windows. 

This year also marked Year Two of our Science Study Committee's 
initiative of reviewing and making recommended changes in our 
Science Curriculum K-12. Additionally, we also began to design 



120 



a three to five year Literacy Initiative in keeping with our 
theme of "Every student, connected, literate and demonstrating 
success," which is focused on writing and reading. 

The 2002-2003 school year also marked the beginning of 
implementing our District Strategic Planning document. Each 
school is identifying those current initiatives and Action Plans 
that we have in place in keeping with the planned goals of: 1) 
student achievement, 2) instructional practices, 3) operational 
priorities, and 4) communication practices. It is our hope and 
goal that this plan will help guide us and direct us over the 
next three to five years. 

The Ipswich School System is a leader across the nation in the 
area of technology integration across the curriculum. In a 
recent Boston College study, Ipswich was shown to be one of the 
top five school districts in the Commonwealth when it came to 
utilization and implementation of technology into the 
curriculum. We are proud to feature numerous 21st Century 
Classrooms within our school district that are designed to 
foster students who take responsibility for their own learning 
in an application-based environment committed to high 
expectations. Within this information-rich, technology-enhanced 
learning environment, the teacher creates a challenging project- 
centered, interdisciplinary classroom. The ultimate goal within 
the 21st Century Classroom is that students will become self- 
directed learners who strive to continuous improvement through 
reflection and self-assessment; collaborative learners who take 
responsibility for their own role in a group; and proficient 
learners who design and present projects and apply the required 
knowledge appropriately. 

In conclusion, I want to express my sincere appreciation to the 
citizens and parents of Ipswich who have given so generously in 
supporting quality education for all children. Support staff, 
teachers, administrators, parents, students and citizens working 
in partnership with each other will move this District forward 
in a culture of continuous improvement and excellence.

IPSWICH HIGH SCHOOL 

Barry Cahill, Principal 

I am happy to report that the new Ipswich Middle/High School is 
close to final completion. On November 16, 2002, we opened our 
new multi-purpose stadium by hosting a football game against 



121 



proudly took the field in a beautifully sodded stadium for their 
victory over Amesbury. The track is completed and will be used 
by the track team this spring. 




Under construction 




Completed 



The tennis courts need only a final surface application in the 
spring to be ready for school and community use. Lighting for 
the courts was provided through the generosity of several 
benefactors. It will be great to see our tennis team in action 
"at home" for the first time in years. 

The remaining fields will be left idle for the spring to let the 
grass fully grow in. The full facility will be used daily in the 



122 



fall of 2003. Final paving of the road and parking lot should be 
completed in the spring. 

Ipswich High School continues to experience success with its 
wonderful student body. The Class of 2002 had a college 
acceptance rate to two and four year colleges of 85%. Among the 
noteworthy schools that greeted our graduates in September are 
Bowdoin, Georgetown, Bucknell, Johns Hopkins, Ohio State, 
Syracuse, and Yale University. Our students were accepted to 
over 100 colleges and universities. 

MCAS scores place Ipswich High School in the top l/5 th of the 
state when ranked by overall score. A handful of students took 
the MCAS retest in December but have yet to receive results. We 
are hopeful that all current seniors will be eligible to 
graduate with passing MCAS scores. 

Our Fine Arts Program continues to be a shining star. The Jazz 
Band received a Gold Medal in the district and the state 
competition. Both Bel Canto and Chamber Singers won Gold Medals 
and performed at Symphony Hall in April. 

A large contingent of singers and musicians will spend the April 
vacation in England. Our musicians will take an exchange trip 
that was postponed from last year. This is an exciting trip for 
all involved. The band and chorus will perform in several 
concerts in various settings on this tour. 

Although our budget faced reductions impacting athletics and the 
purchase of textbooks, we continue to provide a -superb education 
for the young people of Ipswich.

IPSWICH MIDDLE SCHOOL 

Cheryl Forster, Principal 

I am pleased to be reporting to the citizens of Ipswich in my 
eighth year as principal of this dynamic and exciting school. 
We are now in the third year in our new building enjoying the 
warm learning environment we have created here together. The 
school design has allowed us to get to know our students very 
quickly, and each grade has developed its own culture in 
creating three distinct neighborhoods. The facility has allowed 
students and teachers to access state of the art technology as 
well as world-class art, music, and drama programs. Our 
students continue to learn "new basics" along with the old ones, 



123 



as we find that both are truly important in today's world of 
work. 

Educating students has never been more challenging with the 
added mandated testing we now administer in all grades. Test 
results we received validated the good work being done in our 
classrooms by our teachers. MCAS testing is now evaluated by 
the Department of Education with District Performance Ratings. 
The Ipswich Middle School is proud to report that the 
English/Language Arts rating was "very high" and Mathematics was 
"high." The time we have spent teaching them to think and 
write is paying off. 

We are now in our sixth year of providing a no cost after school 
program for all interested students and their families. This 
program is now part of a three-tiered grant with the YMCA and 
the Ipswich Police Department. Students may remain after school 
and receive help with homework and then go to the "Y" and take 
part in a variety of activities for the remainder of the 
afternoon. Activities have included swimming, fitness, cooking, 
nutrition, dance, sports and leadership. 

Excellent middle schools strive to reach the all-important whole 
child. Each grade level specializes in exploratory and child 
centered topics that offer a variety of learning experiences and 
opportunities. At the Ipswich Middle School we work in a "team" 
approach. Teaching blocks are longer for in-depth learning, 
technology is readily available, and class size is limited for 
maximum skill building. It is a cooperative venture. 

Middle School is a time of choices and contrasts. Whether it be 
the quiet solitude of our peaceful courtyard complete with koi 
fish, or the pandemonium in the gym created by our new tiger 
mascot — there is something for everyone here at IMS. 

Students in grade 6 spend an intensive and focused week in the 
fall at Nature's Classroom on Lake Ossipee in New Hampshire. 
All of our sixth grade staff attends to form close bonds with 
the students they will teach for the year. The outdoor 
curriculum is high interest, and many new friends and 
relationships are forged. 

Grade seven students spend four days in canoes on the Ipswich 
River, seeing first hand where their river begins and ends. 
They canoe through miles of forest, wetlands and marsh, 
collecting data all the way. They finish their trip paddling 
from the town wharf to arrive at Hog Island. 



124 



Grade eight students have traditionally also spent a week away 
in Washington, D.C. This year we planned an alternative trip to 
Camp Becket in Lee, MA, where we engaged in science activities 
and climbed Mount Greylock together. 

We offer many enriching programs to meet the interests of all 
types of children. Our excellent Math league, 80 members 
strong, ranks very high in state competition. Our drama, dance 
and music departments involve more than half of our student 
population. Student athletes participate in sports programs 
that teach skills, sportsmanship and wellness. We teach a course 
called "People Smarts'' which focuses on interpersonal skills and 
multiple intelligences. Learning about ourselves is an important 
lesson. 

We continue to be invited to speak at workshops for school 
architects and educators all over the country with school design 
and technology integration as the topic. We are proud to be part 
of such an innovative and exciting learning environment. Our 
outstanding professional faculty works diligently to clarify our 
vision for education — that every child can learn. We are 
constantly finding new ways to reach and teach all children who 
come to our school, and it is an exciting time to be working 
with young people. We love our work and invite you to join us. 
Ipswich should feel proud it supported this wonderful new 
facility to provide the best learning opportunities possible for 
our children. They are, after all, our future.

WINTHROP SCHOOL 

Carolyn Davis, Principal 

This year has been a watershed experience for learning at the 
Winthrop School as our literacy initiative has peaked with 
students' reading and writing skills becoming more proficient. 
There is an infectious enthusiasm for learning in a dynamic and 
energizing school community where students, staff, and parents 
are becoming leaders embracing change and finding opportunities 
to shape the future. 

Our School Improvement Plan written by our School Council 
included the following goals: 

Writing : Students' writing proficiency and fluency was 
developed. Student progress was assessed through the scoring of 
writing samples, the use of grade level writing rubrics, the 



125 



quality of published work and MCAS test results. 
Respect and Responsibility : Responsible and respectful 
attitudes, intentions, and behaviors in students were our focus. 
A common language was articulated and used consistently 
throughout the school. Students learned to communicate their 
feelings, needs, and interests to effectively solve problems as 
well as demonstrate ownership and accountability for their own 
learning. Seventy 4 th and 5 th graders participated in our Student 
Leadership Council where they took responsibility for projects 
that improved the school. 

Annual school-wide topics have unified the school around the 
study of a common theme. This year our theme was "DISCOVERY" 
which focused on discovering the beauty and natural resources in 
Ipswich. Each grade level identified a specific site in Ipswich 
for study and observation. Some examples were The Town Wharf, 
Sally's Pond, the Ipswich River, etc. DISCOVERY challenges 
stretched students to identify changes that occurred throughout 
the seasons collecting data, finding the history of their site 
and making resolutions to protect and become stewards of their 
special place. Students and teachers rose to meet these 
challenges with variety, creativity, and problem solving skills 
producing interesting and educational results. 

Our district-wide Science Focus Committee wrote a science 
instructional and assessment philosophy and a professional 
development plan for science. A science resources website also 
was developed in order to provide resources in Ipswich for field 
work. In order to implement this science initiative, 
professional development, materials and equipment were needed. 
Financial assistance for this project was provided by Turner 
Hill and from the proceeds of a golf tournament to benefit both 
elementary schools organized by Mark Ivanov and Curtis Sprouse. 
We thank them and all the businesses that made contributions to 
this project. This fundraiser also supported our literacy 
project by providing the funds to train all our teachers and 
assistants in a researched-based reading program. 

The major contributions of The Friends of Winthrop and the 
Volunteers In School (VIS) program enhanced the quality of our 
school with generous donations of time and effort. Their 
fundraising projects supported our monthly special assemblies 
with outstanding cultural and educational programs and our 
playground. They also supported requests from teachers for 
technology, library books and building needs, such as new stage 
curtains and microphones. We are grateful to our "Friends" for 
their relentless commitment and outpouring of energy. 



126 



Reduction in transportation due to budget cuts resulted in 200 
more students walking or being driven to the Winthrop school. 
Monthly safety meetings with the DPW, Police and Fire 
Departments enabled us to manage the many implications of this 
issue. We wish to thank all the town departments that worked so 
closely with us, and all the Winthrop parents who made a 
concerted effort to follow the safety procedures outlined for 
them. 

Every year 500 students benefit from the ongoing partnership and 
support we receive at the Winthrop School from the Town of 
Ipswich. We are grateful for this and invite you to visit our 
school where you will observe students engaged in learning who 
are respectful and responsible people, and who are experiencing 
a quality education in a vibrant learning community. We are 
proud of our students' accomplishments and the staff who provide 
outstanding learning experiences for them.

PAUL F. DOYON MEMORIAL SCHOOL 

Kenneth, B. Cooper, Ph.D. Principal 

These are challenging times for education and for educators. In 
times of diminishing resources, it is all the more important to 
identify key areas and to focus available resources and energies 
on those areas of the highest priority. Our priority 



127 



educational themes this past year were "Literacy for All--Math 
Matters--& Character Counts;" and we have worked diligently, and 
I think successfully, to strengthen our program in each of these 
three areas. 

The following are the highlights of our work in "Literacy" in 
2002: a) we reaffirmed our commitment to the "Project Read 
Phonology" approach to the teaching of reading; and two of our 
own faculty provided three half-days of training for all new 
primary instructional staff (including Teaching Assistants) ; b) 
we provided eighteen hours of in-house "Phonemic Awareness" pre- 
phonics training for all faculty pre-k through grade two, with 
further plans to train all teaching assistants; c) we continued 
refining our rubrics for assessing student writing and worked in 
teams to build consistency and reliability in how we scored open 
response questions; d) all students completed several open-ended 
essay questions that will be stored in their cumulative folder; 

e) we reached new "professional agreements" in how we will 
utilize the Framing Your Thoughts and the Write Source program; 

f) we participated in the "Read Across America" celebration by 
holding a school-wide Read-A-Thon; and g) we hosted an "authors 
celebration" (organized by the FRIES) inviting local writers to 
share their work and their craft with our students. We were 
very pleased that in 2002, our Language Arts MCAS scores rose to 
their highest levels ever, with 62% of the students scoring 
either "Advanced," or "Proficient." 

The following are the highlights of our work in the "Math 
Matters," focus area: a) we were able to acquire the new 
edition of the Everyday Math program for all classrooms; b) our 
Math Teaching Assistant provided training and support for new 
staff, helped us to reduce the size of math instructional groups 
in grades two through five, and provided pre-MCAS tutoring 
before school to students who needed extra support; c) we 
instituted a standard math period for most classes of 75 minutes 
daily; d) we held a "Graphing Through the Grades" school-wide 
program, and e) the Friends of Doyon sponsored a Mad About Math 
school-wide assembly. We were very pleased with the 2002 Math 
MCAS results which rose to their highest levels ever, with 65% 
of the students scoring in the "Advanced" or "Proficient" areas. 

In the area of Character Counts, the highlight of the year was 
definitely the creation and mounting of a tile display in our 
lobby with each child and adult in the school contributing a 
tile with a drawing that for them symbolized the 
responsibilities and rewards of membership in our school 
community. The tiles themselves combine to form the shape of 



128 



the school and are now a permanent part of Doyon that students 
will be able to revisit years in the future. 




Last year was another successful one for the Friends of Doyon. 
The Friends raised over $25, 000 and sponsored grade level and 
all-school programs in social studies, music, art history, math, 
poetry and science. The Spring Fair celebration, the semi-annual 
Auction, and the Doyonathon were highly successful. More than 
100 Doyon parents and Ipswich community members volunteered 
their time in assisting in classrooms and the library, 
chaperoning trips, and helping with special programs and events 
such as the Handicapped Awareness grade-level programs, 
Kindergarten Screening, Whale Day, and Destination Imagination. 
Last year's third annual "Moving On" celebration for grade five 
students was most successful; and its success was due in large 
part to parental efforts and energies. We are also very 
grateful for the efforts of a number of parents who organized a 
golf tournament with the proceeds supporting our science 
curriculum and professional development initiatives. For all of 
the above, Thank You! 

Other noteworthy educational events included the following: 1) 
the second year of our Student Leadership Team in grades four 
and five, which is one of our most important programs and 
contributes to our character initiative; 2) the awarding of 
educational grants including a competitive technology grant from 
AT&T Broadband, which represented the second place in New 
England, as well as grants from the Ipswich Savings Bank 
Educational Foundation, and the Department of Education; 3) the 
second year of Full-Day Kindergarten program with each 
elementary school being able to offer two full-day sections; and 



129 



4) an enhancement to the technology at Doyon, with several new 
computers available in each classroom. 

On this, the occasion of my sixteenth annual report, I would 
like to extend a special thanks to the incredibly dedicated and 
talented faculty and staff of the Doyon School with whom it is a 
pleasure to work, and to the community of Ipswich which has been 
so supportive--your continued support is more important than 
ever. 

DEPARTMENT OF SPECIAL SERVICES 

Diana W. Minton, Director 

The Ipswich Department of Special Services continues to maintain 
a very strong inclusion program that allows children with 
disabilities to be educated alongside their typically developing 
peers . 

The dedication of a strong team of special educators across the 
system ensures our students of a very strong and individualized 
educational experience. 

Students with disabilities are active participants in all 
aspects of our education program and contribute much to our 
school cultures. 

The commitment and educational expertise of all our staff allows 
students to actually participate in a challenging and 
Massachusetts Frameworks based curriculum. 

The Ipswich Public Schools continue to receive special education 
funding under the Federal IDEA Grants. This special funding 
allows the school district to raise the level of services 
provided to parents, students and teachers within the Ipswich 
Public Schools 

IPSWICH HOUSING AUTHORITY 

Tone Kenney, Chair 

The Ipswich Housing Authority had a change in leadership for the 
year 2002. Our long time Executive Director, Raymond Daniels, 
and Assistant Director, Marilyn Wilson both retired after many 
years with the authority. Their leadership will be missed, but 



130 



the replacements will do a very creditable job. Ms. Julie 
Martineau has been appointed Executive Director and Ms. Nancy 
Lavoie is the new Assistant Director. As members of the Board of 
Directors, we all have great faith that they will both do 
excellent work in their respective jobs. Ms. Joanne Sikora is 
the new receptionist and Ms. Vickie Walsh is the new bookkeeper. 
A new member will join the force in the near future. 

The modernization work started in 2001 at Southern Heights has 
been completed. Twenty- four (24) kitchens and baths were 
replaced at the complex. Also, the Authority received funding 
from the state for capital improvements to this project in the 
amount of $24,000. This awarded funding resulted from a 
Condition Assessment Report (CAR) application filed last year to 
replace windows, roof shingles and other repairs. 

The construction of a new four-unit group residence for Special 
Needs on Essex Road has started, and we anticipate completion 
for June 2003. 

The Ipswich Housing Authority received an extensive upgrade of 
their existing computer system. All desk terminals were 
replaced with networked workstations & high speed Internet 
service .

IPSWICH CULTURAL COUNCIL 

Dorothy Laurence and Miranda Updike, Co-chairs 

The Massachusetts Cultural Council allocated Ipswich Cultural 
Council $2,000 for grants to be awarded to organizations and 
individual artists supporting cultural activities that benefit 
our town. Ten of the thirteen applicants who applied were 
successful, representing a variety of fields including visual 
arts, music, interpretive science, cultural diversity, 
literature and dance. A Public Web Page is available for 
complete grant information at www.mass-culture.org. . 

A Community Input Survey was distributed to grant applicants 
from this year and last and made available to the general public 
at the library. Our funding was consistent with the community 
priority of community wide gatherings. 

The Sixteenth Annual Art Show, held at EBSCO Publishing and 
chaired by Laurie Miles, represented a wide variety of visual 



131 



art forms and included a Poetry Reading and Interpretive Dance 
Performance . 

ICC meetings at the Town Hall are open to the public. New 
members are welcome.

OPEN SPACE COMMITTEE 

Glenn Hazelton, Chair 

The Open Space Committee (OSC) met once a month during the past 
year. Topics discussed at these meetings included zoning 
articles proposed for town meeting, trail mapping, potential 
Open Space Bond land acquisitions and growth management issues. 
The majority of meetings were taken up in discussions with the 
Ipswich Open Space Bond Manager, Tracie Hines. As a result of 
her hard work, a number of new parcels have been protected. 
Most notable are the "Wendel" property on Jefferys Neck road and 
the "Scott" property on Mill Road. The care of these and other 
open space parcels under the Towns' control is of great concern 
to the OSC; thus we are an active member in the formulation of 
management plans and the potential staffing to implement them. 

Perhaps the most tangible product during the past year was the 
printing of the Ipswich Trail Map. The project was spearheaded 
by the Essex County Trails Association. Many Ipswich citizens 
volunteered to walk and ride the trails throughout the town and 
collect detailed information. They carried GPS equipment with 
them that recorded the actual location of the trails. This 
digital data was then combined with the data stored in the 
Town's Geographic Information System (GIS) . Besides a beautiful 
and useful map product the results of this project will be used 
by the Planning Department and the OSC to evaluate proposed 
developments and open space acquisitions. The data will also be 
used to help maintain the trails.

HALL-HASKELL HOUSE STANDING COMMITTEE 

Terri Stephens/Stephanie Gaskins, Co-chairs 

From the beginning of an idea in 1982 for a place to serve as a 
collaborative community center, a volunteer group called Friends 
of the Little Red House became the Hall-Haskell House Committee. 
For the past twenty years this committee has worked with others 
in town to restore the building since it's location was 
important to the streetscape of this district. Just as in the 
early nineteenth century, this house continues to play a role in 
the lives of ordinary people. Back then in its humble 
surroundings it provided shelter to a family who used the first 
floor as a shop and lived on the second floor. These were trying 
times for shopkeepers to tweak out a living. 

Although no longer a private home, the Visitor Center welcomes 
tourists who are interested in local history and want to explore 
the coastline. This year, 8,000 visitors stopped to ask for 
information, and they were welcomed by over 42 volunteers. These 
volunteers under Bill Nelson's management give countless hours 
as a service to the community. We thank them all for their 
efforts . 

The house continues to provide space for new and seasoned 
artists. Here, too, like the shopkeeper, many have had their 
first beginnings. This year over 44 artists displayed their work 
over the time span of 25 weeks. During that time frame, the 



133 



space functions as a learning laboratory enriching and 
introducing those who visit to a variety of different mediums. 

Thanks to the Ipswich community for your continued support 
throughout the years .

IPSWICH BAY CIRCUIT TRAIL COMMITTEE 

Lawrence Eliot, Chair 

This year the Committee has cut a portion of the Bay Circuit 
Trail on the edge of the Country Club. However, negotiations 
with the Conservation Commission and Mario Marini to connect the 
Country Club portion of the trail with Willow State Forest and 
the Bay Circuit Trail are still in process. 

Preparations for the third edition of Bay Circuit Guide to Walks 
in and Around Ipswich are in full swing. Digital maps are being 
prepared with up to date information. Extensive sketches of the 
flora to be found along the trails are being developed through a 
grant from the Ipswich Arts Council. Text revisions as needed 
are being prepared. We expect to be ready for publication in 
June. Many volunteers are participating in the Bay Circuit Trail 
marking survey and monitoring the Trail. 

The Committee actively participated in the GIS trail mapping of 
Ipswich, sponsored by the Open Space Committee and ECTA. 

With the acquisition of the Wendell property, one member has 
been participating in the Stewardship Committee as a 
representative of trail hikers. 

Guided trail hikes have continued to be organized, advertised in 
the Chronicle and led by members of the Committee. These 
informal walking/hiking groups continue to meet at Town Wharf 
parking lot on Wednesdays at 9:30 a.m. to explore local trails.

CABLE EMERGENCY ROOM ADVISORY COMMITTEE 

Mark J. Coltin, Chair 

During 2002, the Cable Emergency Room Advisory Committee devoted 
substantial efforts in an unsuccessful attempt to avoid the 
closure of the Cable Emergency Room due to a change in 
regulations . 



134 



In 2001, the Department of Public Health adopted a regulation 
which would have required that all physicians staffing the Cable 
Emergency Room be Board Certified emergency room physicians. 
This would result in extra cost to the Town of Ipswich of at 
least $500,000 per year without any assurance that additional 
patients would be referred to Cable or that it otherwise could 
increase its revenue. 

The Cable Emergency Room Advisory Committee worked with other 
Town officials in an effort to obtain relief from both the 
Governor's office and the Legislature. Beverly Hospital took an 
aggressive position, insisting that the Town pay the extra 
$500,000, or that the Contract between the Town of Ipswich and 
Beverly Hospital, which was the means by which the Town kept the 
Cable Emergency Room operating, be terminated upon its 
conclusion at the end of the fiscal year on June 30, 2002. The 
Town and Beverly Hospital participated in an arbitration 
proceeding pursuant to the Contract in early 2002 which resulted 
in a finding that the Town would be required to pay the 
additional costs of the Board Certified emergency room 
physicians under the Contract. 

As in the past, the Committee was very concerned over both the 
public safety and economic impacts which the closure of the 
Cable Emergency Room would have on the Town. Among other 
matters, the Committee was concerned that the ambulance costs 
could increase dramatically, other costs of the Town would also 
increase, and public safety could be compromised. It has been 
the Committee's position that if Beverly Hospital was allowed to 
terminate the Contract, it is likely that the Town would lose 
the Cable Emergency Room as one of the only satellite emergency 
rooms in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

In approximately May of 2002, it became apparent that the Town's 
efforts to obtain relief from the Department of Public Health 
regulation would not occur. Beverly Hospital would not commit 
to the Town the level of service to be maintained at the Cable 
Emergency Room after the termination of the Contract. This left 
the Town in the difficult position of having to plan for 
emergency services after the termination of the Contract on June 
30, 2002, without knowing Beverly Hospital's position relative 
to this matter. 

On June 30, 2002, the Contract was terminated. Beverly Hospital 
kept the Cable Emergency Room operating as an emergency room for 
approximately 60 days thereafter, and then reduced the level of 



135 



services so that it no longer functions as an emergency room. 
Since Cable Emergency Room no longer exists, the Committee 
dissolved in 2002. 

The Chairman of the Committee would like to thank all of those 
members who devoted numerous years of substantial and extensive 
service in the efforts to keep the Cable Emergency Room open, 
including: Clark Ziegler, Elaine Lee, James Muench, Peter 
Dziadose, and Bill Brenizer. 

The Committee also wants to thank the following for the 
tremendous amount of support provided over the years: the Board 
of Selectmen, all of whom were supportive of the Committee'' s 
efforts, but especially Jim Engel and Jim Foley, both of whom 
devoted extraordinary efforts; Charles Surpitski, Director of 
Public Safety; George Howe, Town Manager (who was responsible 
for creating the Committee in the 1980' s); the local media; and 
especially the residents of Ipswich who supported the Cable 
Emergency Room for the past fifteen years.

WATERWAYS ADVISORY COMMITTEE 

Kenneth R. Spellman, Chair 

The Waterways Advisory Committee spent a great amount of time 
studying issues ranging from the number of moorings, to the 
safety training of Ipswich police officers on the waterways, to 
the possibilities of gaining better access to the coastline 
through dredging. 

In the year 2002, 627 mooring permits were issued. This 
increased number supported the thoughts that more and more 
people are using the Ipswich waterways for recreation as well as 
commercial boating. The consensus of the Committee is that 
there may soon be a time when there will be a "cap" on moorings. 

The Ipswich Police continued to upgrade their safety equipment 
by purchasing a dyna-med floating stretcher, which can be used 
in rescue in rough seas in conjunction with the jet ski. The 
officers also did in-service training in rescues and should be 
commended for their consistent training. The staff has been 
open to discussion of new ideas by Committee members. 

Several meetings were held to explore the possibilities of 
dredging the Ipswich River, as well as the off shore sandbars 
which make boating navigation hazardous and difficult at many 



136 



times. Included in the discussions have been representatives of 
the Board of Selectmen, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Army Corps of 
Engineers, and the State D.E.M. The process is ongoing and will 
be an agenda item for many meetings in the future. 

The Waterways Advisory Committee will continue to hold regular 
meetings. We encourage the public to attend and bring their 
requests to the Committee as we continue to seek improvement in 
providing an environment that will enhance the safety and 
enjoyment of the beautiful Ipswich waters.

TRUST FUND COMMISSION 

Edward Michon, Chair 

Robert Weatherall, Vice Chair 

Jean Emerson, Secretary 

Your Commission believes that a meaningful annual report should 
be divided, like Caesar's Gaul, into three parts, namely an 
overview of the year' s activity, a statement of our mission, and 
an outline of goals to be accomplished. 

OVERVIEW 

The Commission held six scheduled meetings during 2002. 
Additionally, we met in joint session with the Trustees of the 
Crane Picnic Fund to review investment strategy. Two 
scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each were awarded to 
graduating seniors from Ipswich High School for further study at 
St. Anselm' s College and Gordon College. Source of funds for 
this aid was the Corneluis T. Thibeault fund, established by Dr. 
Thibeault, a local veterinarian whose love of education and 
desire to motivate young people are reflected in his 
testamentary trust. Thus his good work lives long after him and 
provides incentive for others to emulate. 

As of 29 November 2002, (latest figures available) , the ending 
balances for the trust funds amounted to $1,479,623.70 
distributed among 23 separate funds, the largest of which is the 
Stabilization Fund that totaled $520,567.36. Detailed figures 
on distribution among various funds together with cash flow for 
each account are presented by the Town Treasurer and Town 
Accountant elsewhere in the annual town report. 

MISSION AND ORGANIZATION 

The Trust Fund Commission consists of three members, each 

serving three-year terms, appointed by the Board of Selectmen. 



137 



The Commission itself is established and operates under the laws 
of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and in accordance with 
articles approved at Town Meetings. Working together with the 
Town Treasurer, the Commission is responsible for investment 
management and general operating procedures for the funds. 
Investment policy is defined by the Commissioner of Banks in a 
List of Legal Investments which requires emphasis on safety and 
liquidity of capital combined with the reasonable income. In 
practice, the Treasurer is responsible for operations while the 
Commission is responsible for all investment decisions. 
According to Statute (41:45), a Treasurer is identified as a 
" custodian " of trust funds and is required to "invest, reinvent 
and expend" trust funds as directed by the Trust Fund 
Commission. General laws (Chapter 44, Section 54) states 
explicitly that Trust Fund Commissioners have full authority to 
determine how funds are invested. 

GOALS 

The Commission' s goals continue to focus on improvement in 
reporting procedures and revision of our investment strategy. 
While reports presently prepared are helpful, they are 
incomplete by reason of omission of important data such as 
original market value for each account, annual income and yield 
on investment, and fees incurred. We believe these reports can 
be amended readily to include such information. Knowing the 
value of the bequest at the time made is obviously essential in 
evaluating investment performance. Income and yield are 
necessary in making comparison with alternative investments. 
Knowledge of fees is axiomatic for competitive reasons. 

In our view, the greatest challenge facing the Commission is to 
establish an investment strategy suitable for all seasons. 
Limitations imposed by the " Legal List " serve to inhibit 
flexibility, and the abstractions of "safety of capital, 
liquidity, and income" are not always mutually compatible during 
all phases of a business cycle. 

For many years, all of our trust fund principal has been, and 
still is, invested in one mutual fund, mainly the Franklin Short 
Intermediate Term U.S. Government Fund. Such a policy violates 
a basic principle of investment management, mainly 
diversification of funds to limit risk. The concept of "safety 
of capital" must recognize the erosion of capital caused by 
inflation 

Exhibit A shows a 40 year cycle of interest rates on 10-year 
U.S. Treasury notes. Since interest rates vary inversely with 



138 



the principal value of a bond, a rise in rates is reflected in a 
decline in principal value. Thus, conceivably our funds could 
lose principal during a period of rising rates. In our view, 
projected Treasury deficits suggest rising rates for coming 
years as borrowing requirements escalate.

Diversification of investments, within limits imposed by the 
Legal List, would preclude market price losses incurred in our 
Treasury investments, resulting from rising interest rates. 

Exhibit C shows the price performance of the Standard and Poor 
500 stock index, a representative benchmark for the study of 
common stock market trends. The shaded areas identify 



140 






recessions. This chart, dating back to the recession of 1980- 
1982, illustrates two facts: namely price declines during 
recession but steady long-term price appreciation. It is the 
latter trend which, unfortunately, our trust funds have missed 
for lack of diversification. Your Trust Commission is not 
suggesting sale of our entire position in Treasury investments, 
but rather a gradual reduction in favor of common stock 
investments to provide a growth opportunity for our capital.

SHADED AREAS REPRESENT RECESSIONS 



Accomplishment of our long range objective to diversify our 
investments and provide capital growth potential must, of 
course, be predicated upon a perception of favorable market 
timing and coordinated with phases of a business cycle. We 
would not attempt to do this ourselves. Rather, we have 
discussed retaining professional investment services with 
several banks in the North Shore area. Bids submitted for such 
services, average about 0.7% annually. Based upon principal 



141 



value of $1 million, our cost would amount to $7,000 annually. 
However, this cost is lower than the expenses now associated 
with our present investment in Franklin Funds, which amounts to 
0.86% of $8,600 annually. Thus, an actual reduction in fees is 
possible . 

Every journey begins with a first step. The question now is 
whether the present level of the stock market represents an 
attractive moment to begin our diversification process. 
Although a definitive answer is unknowable, we believe Exhibit D 
suggests increasing value for the equities. Dating back to 1960, 
this chart indicates periods of over and under valuation, and 
suggests increasingly attractive price valuation at this time, 
in our opinion.

We believe that our most important goal lies in truly preserving 
capital by providing a measure of protection against erosion 
caused by inflation. Although present inflation rates are 
modest, this has not always been true. In our view, prudent 
investment management of long term trust funds demands 
diversification of investments. In our opinion our current 
posture, namely one fixed income fund, cannot be regarded as 
compliance with the often stated troika of "safety, liquidity, 
and income" . Thus, we face the future mindful of the works of 
the Roman stoic philosopher, Seneca (circa 65 A.D.) "Through all 
vicissitudes... we make our way." 

We invite all taxpayers to attend our meetings, which are held 
at Town Hall. Dates are posted at Town Hall, and may also be 
learned from the Treasurer's office or any Commission member.
